[Solved] How to Customize Keyboard Shortcuts

Postby PPLIFE » Wed May 15, 2019 9:02 am

I have installed an Extension 'MultiFormatSave' (https://extensions.openoffice.org/en/pr ... formatsave) which is super useful by the way, and I expect that I will mostly be saving my projects using this extension instead of the regular Save command. Now I want to change the Command+S shortcut to work with this Extension instead. How do I do that?

Thanks.

That exxtension was written in Basic. You will find the subroutine "multiFormatSave" in the MyMacros when you customize the desired (and free) hot key:

Wonderful! Thanks a lot! It looks like I now have two places that use the same hotkeys. When I press Cmnd+S, the first time will save a single file like it used to. The second time I press Cmnd+S it then activates the MultiFormatSave.

I don't mind that but I wish I could remove the original Save command entirely from the Cmnd+S.

It is not a good idea to remove the default commands of the default hotkeys. I do not know if it possible anyway or not.

Use a free key combination.

You can change the default hotkeys.
But better apply the Ctrl+Shift+S shortcut as shown in the screenshot.

Great!

Thank Hagar Delest and Zizi64. I used Ctrl+Shift+S instead as you suggested and that solved the problem!
