Hi :)
I can empathise with Alexander because we almost always give answers
assuming people are using Windows or Linux and things are a little
different on Macs and iThings.

The Published Guides do the same thing but at least they have a tiny
section at the front to explain how to translate the instructions into Mac
= ie what to do instead of "Tools - Options"

Mac and iThings usage is growing and has grown quite significantly already
but it's still quite far from 30-40%, and Mac users are not so dissatisfied
with their own dedicated eco-system that installing LibreOffice is such a
vital necessity for them.  "Pages" ("Author"?) is a nice enough
word-processor to have by default.  Ulysses and Scrivener have great
reputations and are only $45 each against Word's $80.  There are plenty of
fairly good choices at $20ish and even at $5.  There is already a much
fairer market in the Apple world, and LibreOffice does have it's fair(ish)
share within that.  So it's not a surprise that so relatively few
LibreOffice users are using Apple.

I guess that, just as with almost any minority group, it gets a bit
annoying that it rarely gets any mention at all.  Especially for people
such as Alexander who puts in such a huge amount of work for all of us.

Regards from
Tom :)

Hi Stuart,

&lt;;    --
add unicode conversion shortcut like word (alt+x) has been in the source
since August 2015, and is included in 5.1 release onward.

Doesn't work on OSX 10.11.5 with LO 5132.

What many people seem to ignore when making shortcut changes in LO code
is whether or not they will work on a result, many don't
(including the example you point to above).

Piet beat me to is, so I'll just comment that the details for using the
.uno:UnicodeNotationToggle with OS X and several localizations are in the
linked tdf#73691 had you bothered to review it, and that in fact OS X
receives appropriate attention in these usability areas. But more help is
always welcome.

The ShortCut key assignments are mostly made centrally in source in
Accelerators.xcu  [1]. There are a few that are coded deeper in the vcl
