Ok so the Euro symbol by pressing CTRL + ALT + 4 used to give me the € in Libre office. It still works here and in google etc so it's something in the Libre Office system? Any ideas how to get it working again? Seems to be since the update too. Thanks

What keyboard, Language, operating system and keyboard definition to you have? Normally you would expect to find the € character defined with the Alt-Gr key. Usually Alt-Gr 4 for a UK keyboard but sometimes Alt-Gr 5. See https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/questi... .

Works with me using an Irish or UK Keyboard using Alt-Gr 4, German Alt-Gr e and American Alt-Gr 5. Ctrl + Alt 4 is program rather than system specific. LibreOffice does not override key settings already in use by the system. So the change may be in the system rather than LibO.

Oh wait...ALTGR + 4 is working now which is good. Just don't understand why my old way doesn't work as I'm so used to ALT+CTRL+4. Ah well, thanks for your help

On my Danish/Scandinavian key board the glyphs on the lower right corner of the key is in combination with Alt-Gr they also work on this key board for @, £, $, €, {, [, ], } and \
