Hi Mihkel,

Why does LibreOffice 'speak' of "Prior" and "Next" keys (e.g. in Tools -
Settings, Keyboard tab; or in tooltips for Previous/Next Page in Print
When I first noticed them earlier today, I had no idea what the "Prior"
could be -- I asked and was told that "it's probably PgUp", and that HP
keyboards have it.

Prior and Next are the terms used in X, also understood by xmodmap for
example. The actual name displayed depends on the system you're on, plus
a few translations or names adapted to the actual keyboards commonly
used, depending on what the system says what language your keyboard is

Thanks for the clarification. I checked with xev and the PgUp/Donw keys
really show as Prior/Next there O_o
What's weird is that no other program shows them like that. I'm using
Debian Lenny and the keyboard model is set to "Asus Laptop" (with a custom
Estonian layout).

At least I know it's not LibreOffice's "fault" ;)

Thanks again,
