Can I disable ALL the shortcut keys in LibreOffice Writer?


I'm using an old LO (4.3.4.1) and inadvertently hitting the shortcut keys is causing all kinds of things. (Like the screen splitting in half, like a window popping up telling me LO will close in 30 seconds etc etc.) I don't need ANY of the shortcut keys. Is there a way to disable all of them? Thanks.

Probably. Have you looked at the Help?

In my version (5.3.6.1), Tools Menu -> Customize -> Keyboard tab has a list of all shortcut keys. No idea if that's where it's located in your version, of course.

Thanks scasey. That's where it is in mine too. Do you happen to know, regarding the shortcut keys that have no function listed alongside them--do they do anything? Just leave them or delete them?

My guess would be that they don't do anything at all...but try a couple and see what happens.

I wouldn't delete the shortcuts themselves...only the definitions, in case you find you need one back.
