Create your OWN key sequence for a shortcut

Postby Laurelion » Thu Apr 29, 2021 12:20 am

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?

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.

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.
