comment LibreOffice Writer: Replace specific keystrokes with custom text or characters
@user282186 Glad to hear that you've taken the initiative. I think it would be a good idea to link the bug report here (or better, yet: in your question). That way users facing the same issue will be able to voice their opinion and/or submit suggestions on the bug report.

comment LibreOffice Writer: Replace specific keystrokes with custom text or characters
I can understand how the tutorials might seem overwhelming but I can assure you that it's worth the effort. This is something you configure once and carry over from one system to another for years. There are other LO-specific solutions (1, 2‌​, 3) but they aren't very straightforward, either.

comment Special Characters in 14.04 with Alt Right
To the close voters: please hold off on voting until we have determined what kind of "special character" key the OP is referring to; @JPG: When you say you used Alt for special characters do you mean you used it as a "modifier" key? I.e.: Did you hold Alt down and press another key? Or was it assigned as a "compose" key, i.e.: Did you press it once and then followed up with a specific key sequence to print a special character?

comment How can I convert a coloured icon to a monochrome one?
Hi. First of all: It would have probably been better to ask this in a comment, but with the reputation restrictions on commenting in place I understand how this was the only way to do it. Anyway: You were on the right track with downloading the source. Currently the only way to modify the notification icons is to replace the corresponding image files at compilation time. I have updated my answer with a quick summary of the steps you will have to follow to install the updated icons. Hope it works for you.
