Stop OO or Writer fm changing my Function Keys

Postby Spook » Thu Oct 25, 2018 12:37 pm

While I can Delete Writer's changing of Keyboard Function Keys 1-12, I haven't been able to find or figure out how to make it permanent across all documents. When I close and reopen, they're back. Do I have to find a config file somewhere and do a manual change? Your doc pages only describe up through version 3.1 or so. I'm running the latest (4.1.5). I don't want to disrupt OO's or Writer's other extensive changes I've made to other keys (so I don't want to simply disable all changes to the whole keyboard). I just need the plain F1-F12 (no CTRL or SHIFT or ALT functions) not messed with. Shouldn't there be an easy way to prevent messing with (plain) F1-F12? Or Deleting just those and having it "stick" across all of OO so that opening anything in OO won't interfere with F1-F12? (At present, I have to switch back to Mozilla or close OO entirely to use those function keys properly. Thanks.
