Using Shortcut Keys
01010000.xhp
par_id3151299
help.text
A great deal of your application's functionality can be called up by using shortcut keys. For example, the <switchinline select="sys"><caseinline select="MAC"><item type="keycode">Command+O</item></caseinline><defaultinline><item type="keycode">Ctrl+O</item></defaultinline></switchinline> shortcut keys are shown next to the <emph>Open</emph> entry in the <item type="menuitem">File</item> menu. If you want to access this function by using the shortcut keys, press and hold down <switchinline select="sys"><caseinline select="MAC"><item type="keycode">Command</item></caseinline><defaultinline><item type="keycode">Ctrl</item></defaultinline></switchinline> and then press the <item type="keycode">O</item> key. Release both keys after the dialog appears.

Entering Unicode Characters
01010000.xhp
par_id851591272526169
help.text
You can enter arbitrary Unicode characters in the document typing the Unicode hexadecimal code point and then pressing <switchinline select="sys"><caseinline select="MAC"><keycode>Command+Option+X</keycode></caseinline><defaultinline><keycode>Alt+X</keycode></defaultinline></switchinline> (default). Type the Unicode hexadecimal notation and press <switchinline select="sys"><caseinline select="MAC"><keycode>Command+Option+X</keycode></caseinline><defaultinline><keycode>Alt+X</keycode></defaultinline></switchinline> to toggle between the Unicode character and its hexadecimal notation. Selection is not necessary but the conversion will apply to the selected characters. Toggling occurs on the characters prior to the cursor position when these characters form a valid Unicode hexadecimal point. Hexadecimal code points with value in the range U+0000 to U+0020 are not converted.

The default Unicode conversion shortcut is <switchinline select="sys"><caseinline select="MAC"><keycode>Command+Option+X</keycode></caseinline><defaultinline><keycode>Alt+X</keycode></defaultinline></switchinline> and <switchinline select="sys"><caseinline select="MAC"><keycode>Command+Option+C</keycode></caseinline><defaultinline><keycode>Alt+C</keycode></defaultinline></switchinline> in some locales where the default Unicode shortcut interferes with the main menu shortcut. To reassign the shortcut, choose <menuitem>Tools > Customize > Keyboard</menuitem> and select <emph>Category:Options</emph> with <emph>Function:Toggle Unicode Notation</emph>.

Using Shortcut Keys to Control Dialogs
01010000.xhp
par_id3154288
help.text
There is always one element highlighted in any given dialog - usually shown by a broken frame. This element, which can be either a button, an option field, an entry in a list box or a check box, is said to have the focus on it. If the focal point is a button, pressing <item type="keycode">Enter</item> runs it as if you had clicked it. A check box is toggled by pressing the <item type="keycode">Spacebar</item>. If an option field has the focus, use the arrow keys to change the activated option field in that area. Use the <item type="keycode">Tab</item> key to go from one element or area to the next one, use <item type="keycode">Shift+Tab</item> to go in the reverse direction.

Pressing <item type="keycode">Esc</item> closes the dialog without saving changes. <switchinline select="sys"><caseinline select="MAC"></caseinline><defaultinline>If you place the focus on a button, not only will you see the dotted line framing the name of the button, but also a thicker shadow under the button selected. This indicates that if you exit the dialog by pressing the <item type="keycode">Enter</item> key, it is the equivalent of pressing that button itself.</defaultinline></switchinline>
