What has happened to the top level menu shortcuts (Alt-F, Alt-E etc) in LO 4?
I just checked in LO 126.96.36.199 on Ubuntu 12.04.2, and Alt-F and Alt-E will open the File and Edit menus (respectively).
Could you please tell us what OS you’re using and what build version of LibreOffice you’re running?
Update: @Pansmanswer – I just checked-in with the QA folks, and they said that this looks like a bug. Please file a bug and provide a list of steps that can reproduce your problem.
Please post a link to any bugs you file in a comment below using the format “fdo#123456”.
Thank you so much for your prompt reply.
I am running LO 188.8.131.52 on Ubuntu 12.04 (32 bit Kernel Linux 3.2.0-38-generic-pae.)
The top menubar does not have underlined letters, and none of the former shortcut keys work.
I would also like to be able switch off the global menu. This version of LibreOffice seems to ignore the switch in SystemSettings-Unsettings-Windows.
Looks like this could be:
fdo#57104 - UI: UI fails to implement initial Alt-key shortcuts to top-level Libre Office menu items - UNCONFIRMED
There is no solution available to this problem. For this and several other reasons I have reverted to LO 3.5.7.
