With Win 7, LO 126.96.36.199 (also confirmed with 188.8.131.52) if one does F1 -
shortcut keys - general, one finds a section (here truncated):
Practical Text Input Fields
Use the shortcut keys Ctrl+Shift+S to open the *Special Characters*
dialog to insert one or more special characters.
The Ctrl+Z shortcut keys are used to undo modifications one step at
a time; the text will then have the status it had before the first
#2 is wrong, and so blatantly wrong in the ordinary context, that I have
to wonder whether there is some misunderstanding on my part.
Does the "Text Input Fields" title imply some area of editing other than
normal document work, where different rules apply?
I think it refers to entering text in text fields on a form, where
Ctrl+Shift+S does indeed bring up the "Special Characters" dialog. It's
not entirely obvious that's what it's referring to though.
If we have the error that we appear to have, is there any person/group
interested in notification?
It's probably best to file on the bug tracker
<https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/> (after checking that the issue
isn't already reported). After selecting the "LibreOffice" product
there's a "Documentation" component described as "Documentation includes
local LibreOffice Help, the Help Wiki and all Manuals."
I have no way to check, but imagine that this text has been this way for
a long time, implying that there may not be much interest in correction.
#10 is also wrong as written, or at least incomplete, inasmuch as
normally multiple ^Z strokes would be needed to return to the initial
It does say "one step at a time", but then saying "the text will then
have the status it had before the first change" is a bit confusing. I
guess that's if you repeatedly press Ctrl+Z.
If you're reporting issues with this section, I notice the English (UK)
help for 5.1.1 has two more items after number 10, which are numbered 1
and 2... I'm guessing that should be 11 and 12!
