Bug ID: 116880
Summary: EDITING , DUPLICATE accessibility - change keyboard
Version: 18.104.22.168 release
OS: Windows (All)
Dear Libreoffice community,
I just installed the latest version 22.214.171.124 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.
