PostPosted: Fri Dec 03, 2004 3:04 pm    Post subject: Command-key bug in Patch 7

Patch 7 is messing with certain common command-keys.

Normally in the U. S. keyboard layout, Command-B is "Bold" and Command-"I" is "Italic".
Command-C is "Copy" and Command-X is "Cut".

However, I use the Dvorak keyboard layout. Under Dvorak in Patch 7, Command-C italicizes a selection while Command-X bolds a selection! Command-C and Command-X don't do anything. I can't copy or cut using keyboard commands!

I have not made anything like an exhaustive examination of other commands and potential errors. I do not recall this behavior in previous patch versions but I have not tested that either.

I fear that Patch 7 has introduced some unfortunate mis-mapping of command keys that will also affect other language keyboard layouts.

Keyboard layouts are selected in the International panel in System Preferences. Note that I am using "Dvorak" and not "Dvorak-Qwerty".

Is this an OpenOffice, NeoOffice/J Patch 7, or Java on Mac OS X problem? I have never noticed it before and my other apps certainly do not behave this way.

I found the solution for this bug (see http://bugzilla.neooffice.org/bug.php?op=show&bugid=256) and a fix will be in the next Neo/J 1.1 Alpha 2 patch.
