Bug ID: 116880
           Summary: EDITING , DUPLICATE accessibility - change keyboard
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: release
          Hardware: All
                OS: Windows (All)
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: medium
         Component: Draw

Dear Libreoffice community,

I just installed the latest version and very happy with it. As a
professional designer for almost two decades, I was surprised to see the
default Duplicate keyboard shortcut command is SHIFT+F3. 

Kindly I propose this to be changed in default to CTRL+D. 

Reasons and use cases :

1) The industry wide shortcut is CTRL+D. From Illustrator, to Inkscape to many
other similar softwares, this is what you expect. Please note Duplicate is not
the same as COPY+PASTE, and in fact the DRAW implementation is quite perfect!

2) Concerning interface design. The so-called "posture" of SHIFT+F3 is
secondary, not primary. What I mean by this is that SHIFT+F3 would be more apt
for commands that aren't as frequently used. Control+D is more useful to a
intermediate and advanced user. Source : About Face: The Essentials of User
Interface Design by Alan Cooper.

Thank you for time and consideration.
