     Mac does have a "Control" key
(even labeled "Ctrl" on my German MacBook keyboard, not "Strg" as the
     localization of "Ctrl" on German standard PC-style keyboards), and Writer's
     "Format - Clear Direct Formatting" (which this help item is presumably about) is
     indeed Ctrl+M (labeled "^M" in the menu) on macOS.
So unconditionally use "Ctrl+M" here for now, notwithstanding potential Mac
     localization issues (see that German "Ctrl" vs "Strg" issue).

I have no idea how we generally handle this issue in documentation and translation: always use generic "Ctrl+M" (whatever that gets translated to); use some mark-up to ensure (German etc.) translation will be "Strg+M" for non-Mac and "Ctrl+M" for Mac; use "Control+M" on Mac (as had been done prior to <> "I don’t think Macs have Control keys…"; or...?

This corrects 9ed1958ba7f75bb4184f09d79814849d06313d72 "I don’t think Macs have
     Control keys…"
