[Solved] Where are stored the Custom shortcuts ?

Postby arfgh » Thu Feb 25, 2021 5:52 pm

Recently i had to refresh the os for reasons and because i had some custom short cuts defined for my base DB... when returning to it after put back all, these short cuts were lost. So it is clear they are not set in my DB file. Clearly these settings are stored by AOO in some other part...
So, somebody knwos where is this stored in order to back up that configuration for a future ?

thx in advance

Probably in registrymodifications.xcu in the OO User profile.

Most, if not all, of the customization settings for OpenOffice are stored in the User Profile.
Did you have to enter your name /initials when you opened your database file after refreshing your OS? If you did, then this supports that the settings are (were?) in your user profile.
If not, then they are either stored in a location I'm unaware of or your profile has become partially corrupt.

You can export your customization in Tools > Customize > Keyboard and then Save button on the right.
Personally, I do a whole user profile backup from time to time (beware of the size of the /backup folder in the profile). This way, I'm sure all is at hand in case of trouble, including all the extensions that don't need to be reinstalled then.

Please add [Solved] at the beginning of the title in your first post (top of the topic) with the *EDIT button if your issue has been fixed.
