Re: [libreoffice-design] Ctrl+Enter to trigger the default button in dialogs

My take: make it simple. Enter closes the dialog when no other control occupies the focus. In that case I wouldn't implement any other key combination like ctrl or alt+enter to simulate the action. (And, of course, the alt+O = _Okay hotkey resp. alt+C for _Close at the macro organizer).
