I'm forwarding this bug to the list and bookmarking in my mail for
future follow-up as we have a minor issue to correct in the Writer
documentation (after seeing how the bug gets handled by the devs).

"I checked in the documentation covering Writer (Getting Started guide
and Writer guide) and in the online help, and the coverage of the
<Ctr>+<RightArrow> key combination. They both talk about the general
action but do not go into details about the behavior near the end of a

The online help ("shortcut keys; in text documents") says "Go to start
of next word". This accurately describes the current general behavior,
although additional coverage of behavior at the end of a line might be
helpful for people working on macros, for example.

The documentation for Writer (Writer guide, Keyboard Shortcuts
chapter) says "Goes to end of word". This is inaccurate and should be

I read for "Ctrl+Arrow Right" in
- Writer Guide - Word Processing with LibreOffice 3.3:
 "Ctrl+Arrow Right: Goes to end of word."

- Writer  Help from Help package:
 Ctrl+Arrow Right: Go to start of next word

My experience with "LibreOffice 3.4.3 RC1  – WIN7  Home Premium  (64bit)
English UI [OOO340m1 (Build:301)]": Ctrl+Arrow Right moves caret to start of
next word. That is in accordance with Help.

I checked behavior in Acrobat REader 10: same behavior as in LibreOffice 3.4.3

It seem that this report is INVALID, behavior is as written in HELP

Can you please check? Might be info in Documentation is wrong?
