Feature title TaskId Spec. abstract Spec. link
Basic IDE keyboard shortcuts UI configurable internal feature-info:
The Basic IDE keyboard shortcuts can now be configured in the Keyboard tabpage of the Customize dialog (Tools/Customize...).
not set
Titlebar displays module name and file name, not title i20125 Instead of showing the filename or the title (if available) and the office name within the Window Title now the file name of the document plus the office components name will at display. speclink
Chinese translation i30300 Very close to the features of the Japanese 'Hiragana' and 'Katakana' and the Korean 'Hangul/Hanja Conversion' Chinese users are accustomed to having a built in conversion between Simplified and Traditional Chinese. This conversion allows them to easily transfer Chinese written text in between simplified Chinese and traditional Chinese characters. speclink
Add Keyboard Support for Assigning Paragraph Styles i29441 (OOo) allows to assign styles (i.e. paragraph styles) via keyboard. This allows to easily assign shortcuts while typing in a document without mouse or dialog interaction. This is a big improvement for professional writers and people with disabilities who need keyboard accessibility. A set of predefined shortcuts for paragraph styles is provided for Writer only. Calc, Draw and Impress are supporting this feature too but do not offer presets by default. speclink
