Hi all,

It seems we'll have a little problem in the near future.

Mac OS X uses a Cmd+Space shortcut to switch keyboard languages (example betweem Russian and English). To use an unbreakable space one normally uses Shift+Option+Space).

But in OpenOffice (Windows) Ctrl+Space = unbreakable space. Because under X11 Mac version Ctrl=Cmd, Cmd+Space=unbreakable space.

Currently X11 doesn't support this shortcut to switch keyboards and one ust use the mouse. But in the future the problem will happen.

Just my $ 0.02.

Yes, this is very true that the keybindings will be in conflict. Unfortunately, since my three key modifier patch was declined by OOo (!@#$!), there's no way to distinguish between command and control at the moment. There are also some other reserved keybindings which we need to be aware of:

AFAIK OOo in general is happy as a clam using its own keybindings everywhere, and that will need to change. The keybindings are actually stored on a per-document basis (why that decision was made, I'll never know) so the OOo OS X filters will need to be able to substitute keybindings on the fly or warn users about invalid ones and ask them to change them.
