Symptom:

--

Cause:

You want to assign your own shortcut keys in OpenOffice.

Solution:

In OpenOffice you can configure any shortcut keys to perform any tasks. Go to Tools > Customize and select the "Keyboard" tab.

You will see a couple of boxes with options. The upper box shows the current shortcut keys while the lower boxes shows the available functions that you can map to. On the lower box, scroll to the function that you need and mark it. Now on the upper box, select the key that you want to set as the shortcut and click "Modify".

Example:

If you want OpenOffice to open a new window with Ctrl+N, first scroll to New (Left lower box > application and right lower box > New) and highlight it. Next choose Ctrl+N on the upper box and click "Modify". Now you can see the configured shortcut key at the right lower box.

You can freely assign any shortcuts till you find the most comfortable keys for you. There is no need to adhere to the default shortcut key configurations.

Note: If you want to migrate your shortcuts to another machine, you can simply save the current shortcut keys as a configuration file and load it in the new machine.
