View Full Version : [ubuntu] copy paste working in open office without being configured !

June 23rd, 2010, 01:10 PM

while checking out open office i noticed something strange. while the "copy" shortcut command seems to be disabled / unalloted , it does work in practice !
i noticed in keyboard shortcuts that there is no command alloted with the Ctrl + C combination. this i saw from both the "shortcuts" and the "functions" menus in customize.
so what is the meaning of this paradox ?

It is either a bug or more likely you have the Ctr+C and Ctr+P commands enabled globally for the system, that is, when you hit the shortcuts OpenOffice doesn't do anything, however, Gnome (Ubuntu) does the copy and paste for you.

If you wish to disable those, check how to do that for Gnome.
