I'm learning the function keys between MS Excel and Libre Calc work
quite differently. In Excel if you wish text in a cell to return to
the next line in that cell, you choose Ctrl + Enter.
I think you are a bit confused here! In Microsoft Excel, Ctrl+Enter is
used in place of Enter to complete an entry when you have selected a
range of cells and want them all populated with the same entry. In
Excel, if you want to create a manual line break within a cell, you
use Alt+Enter, not Ctrl+Enter.
That doesn't seem to work in Libre Calc. Could you please share how
that is done in Libre Calc?
To add to the confusion, Ctrl+Enter is precisely how you achieve the
same thing in Calc! But this works only in the cell, not in the Input
Line. And - you've guessed it! - Alt+Enter is how you perform multiple
insertions. The two keyboard shortcuts swap their effects between
Excel and Calc, that is.
Has anyone happened upon any comparison chart showing how to
accomplish certain functions in Libre Calc compared with how you
perform them in MS Excel?
is written for OpenOffice and may or may not be helpful. It's part of
OpenOffice's Migration Guide.
I trust this helps.
