Some keyboard shortcuts that I used in OpenOffice.org don't work like before.

Some shortcuts are different from the ones in OpenOffice.org. See the table below:


LibreOffice OpenOffice.org
Del. Deletes the content Opens the dialog

Edit ▸ Delete

← Backspace Opens the dialog

Edit ▸ Delete

Deletes the content
Ctrl+D Edit ▸ Fill Selection list
Ctrl+⇧ Shift+D versions 3.3.x

Alt+ versions 3.4 and later.

Selection list


If you want to continue using the shortcuts from OOo, you can set this in the options:
Tools ▸ Options ▸ LibreOffice Calc ▸ Compatibility ▸ OpenOffice.org legacy


Keyboard shortcuts for autocompletion are also different:

Tab ↹ validates the entry and positions the cursor in the next column on the same row.

Ctrl+Tab ↹ scrolls through previous cell contents.


These bindings are not affected by the option setting shown above.
