I'm switching over from MS Office and am used to using alt-shit-up/down to rearrange the order of bullets.

I've found references in Libre Office to Ctrl-Alt-Up/Down shortcuts being configured for 'Move Up' and 'Move Down' however these don't seem to work with bullets (or anything else I've tried).

There is a chance that some other application on my system is intercepting these shortcut keys (I've already disabled the controls from the Intel video driver for changing screen orientation). I'm running Windows 8.1.

Can anyone let me know if these shortcut keys should work to rearrange bullets, and if not, then is there a way to replicate the alt-shift-up/down behavior from MS Word?

I am using LibO and moving bullets up and down works. In my case it is the alt+up and alt+down key. However, it is very likely that I modified the key allocation because ctrl+alt+up/down turns my screen.

You could possibly do the following:

Check if ctrl+alt+up/down is really assigned to move a bullet up/down.

Tools > Customize > tab: Keyboard > search ctrl+alt+up/down and see if there is move up/down are allocated. If not: Category: Edit > Function: Move Up/Down > Modify > OK

If you cannot get it running with ctrl+alt+up/down, it seems there is still another application influencing this function. But you can consider to make a different assignment like I did.
