Could you also let me know what kind of document you are working with when you can find the option for these shortcut keys (spreadsheet, text doc, ...)? I can imagine the set of available keys varies by document type, though I don't find the keys you list above no matter what.

@ROSt52, my comment about the version was a response to @oweng. I can indeed find the Tools>Customize>Keyboard but I have to have a document open. On a Mac the program can get into a state where the pulldown menu is still there but nothing's open, and in that context I don't find the option either. Presumably the program wants to know whether I'm setting up keys for a text document, a spreadsheet, etc.

What version of LibreOffice are you using? I'm on Version 4.1.4.2 for Mac and neither the semicolon nor the brackets are on my list, even if I set my locale to Australia and restart LibreOffice. Thanks.

Is there a workaround by which I can create shortcut keys using punctuation? The issue is that I sometimes have to use Excel and I wish I could make certain shortcut keys consistent between the two. Someone asked something similar ~4 years ago in the Open Office forum but I figured enough had changed that it was worth checking again.

The closest I've found in this page full of extensions and other useful info which includes a tool that lets you use the Alt key in shortcuts, but no help on punctuation.
