    Libreoffice keyboard shortcuts

    I'm going crazy figuring out how to use a keyboard shortcut for "file" in LibreOffice, or ANYthing on the menu bar for that matter. What's the secret?

    Keyboard shortcuts for apps - LibreCalc

    I totally cannot figure out how to select File, Edit, or ANYthing on the menu bar of LibreOffice using a keyboard shortcut. I'm somewhat disabled and have great difficulty using a mouse. Will SOMEone please help??

    On my computer F10 works, but I'm using Xubuntu, so it may be different in Unity.

    Re: Why is LibreOffice such an insanely nasty peice of cwap?

    Hold 'Alt' & type 'F', that will open the file menu

    Hope that helps.

    Hi carl_schulze - are you using Ubuntu with Unity? If so, I'm able to access the file menu using ALT+F, the edit menu using ALT+E, etc in my 12.04 installation - but only by pressing both keys pretty well at the same time. If I press ALT too long before the other key, I get the Dash command.

    Hope this helps!

    Hello carl_schulze,

    Please do not start multiple threads for the same issue, it dilutes community effort and it is confusing.

    Play. F6 highlights File, up and down arrows open and close it, left and right highlight the various headings. Solved.

    * With further playing I realise F6 actually moves the highlight around to other things ...
