That suggests you are running Linux.

The image Dave is referring to was taken from a Windows 7 install of
the Calc Guide 6.2. We (The Documentation Team) always take captures
of the guide we are writing about. As much as we would like to, we
cannot cover every possible visual difference between each operating

The conclusion to this thread is that Ctrl+- opens the dialog in both
Linux and Windows (cannot speak for macOS), but the D key only
functions as described by Brian under Windows, which is why Linux
users don't see the underline. Although less convenient, Linux users
can use the up and down arrow keys can be used to select the required

Since I believe such underlines were implemented on Unix/Linux before
Windows, it's disappointing to me that the functionality isn't there in
the Linux implementation.

And in this case where there's a functional difference rather than a
visual difference, it would be nice to see that documented.

But thanks for explaining the situation. PS I think you mean R key
