Did try that, even shut down all instances of OOo writer.

It's OOo 3.2.1 though, so maybe that does not work with that "old" version?

In any case I changed the program to first define and store the
accelerations and then create the toolbar items.

Probably I will add a menu in addition, hoping that it will underline
the shortcut letters.

No problem.

Thank you *very* much for your help and insights!
