After months of switching layouts and banging my head against this bug, I thought I should check LibreOffice settings (I'm using now). What figures? I did find something. And in just a few clicks.

This is not a bug! It's simply a matter of configuration.

For the regular keyboard shortcuts (like Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, etc.) to remain operational in LibreOffice applications while using a non-latin keyboard layout (like Greek or Russian), go to Tools -> Options -> Language Settings -> Languages, check the Ignore system input language option, save, and Bob's your uncle.

Hope this helps.


PS Technically, though, shortcuts still remain language-dependent. This means if you enable this option, you will have to set your document languages manually.
