Hi Thomas,

Good evening from JapanI have been loyal Wordperfect user for a long time, but the software
     gives me lately a lot of grief.Thus, I am considering to permanently switch to Libreoffice 
     been using Openoffice on and off in the past).Question:Wordperfect has a handy little 
function, that allows the user to
     assign just about everything to individual keys, including which
     letter they represent.Since I am a German, but live in Japan where I am used to machines
     which have basically the American keyboard layout,I cherished this Wordperfect function, 
because it allowed me to
     assign the letter "y" and "z" to their respective opposite position.That means, if I switch 
under Windows to the German keyboard layout,
     the "y" comes to lie where "z" is printed on the key and vice versa.
     The WP function allows me to change that, so that I get a "y", where
     it is printed on the key, even while using the German keyboard
     layout.This is not essential, but I have been used to that layout for my
     typing.Is there any way, I could accomplish this little feat in
     Libreoffice?Thank you.

Depending on your Windows version "The Microsoft Keyboard Layout
Creator" might be the right tool for you.

Kind regards
