As title, I'll try to explain better.
I wont create a new shortcut with a new series of keys and then assign to a macro.
For example I want to create a shortcut with this keys: "ctrl+shift+<" or "ctrl+shift+>", I have found a hundred topic to assign the shortcut to something but no one about create a shortcut by zero.
It is possibile with Openoffice?
Thanks

Tools > Customise > Keyboard ..., shows what is available. See Appendix A in the Writer User Guide.

Or add the macro to a toolbar and give it an icon - it's then just one mouse click. See the Writer tutorial on recording macros for how.

As a new poster you will find much useful information in the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials, the up to date AOO Writer for Students and the Writer User Guide. May I suggest you bookmark the pages.

AFAIK, it's not possible to create new keyboard shortcuts in AOO. There is no "New" button on the Customize dialog. You might be able to do it using AutoHotkey for Windows.
