I've just installed the LibreOffice for Mac (10.9.5) and noticed in Writer that my keyboard shortcut Command-Shift-E has been taken over by 'Record Changes'. Even though I've got it set properly in Tools>Customise, 'Record Changes' overrides my custom setting.

Any way to get around this? Command-Shift-E is pretty valuable keyboard real estate which I wouldn't want to waste on a function I rarely use.

Thanks in advance.

After more investigation I discovered that unlike previous versions you have to quit and restart LibreOffice in order for some shortcuts to update.

I also experienced some inconsistent behaviour where setting shortcuts to certain options (I tried Edit->Hyperlink) did not require a restart.

It's probably still an issue but I am happy I've got my shortcuts working again.
