In one phrase: dead keys are not working in LibreOffice applications like writer
or calc. I refer to LibreOffice version 220.127.116.11. Dead keys DO work in ALL OTHER
applications. I am using the keyboard "USA International". A character like ?
is no problem in most of the applications. They same applies for e.g. the
double quotation mark (") - the key that needs to be pressed first in order to
get ?. However, in Libreoffice in my configuration as summarised here, signs like
" and ? do not show up. I have similar problems with characters like ?, ?, ?,
?. ?, etc. Also signs like `, ~ or ' do not show up in Writer or any other
Libreoffice application. It does not matter whether I work in Dutch, English,
Italian, French, German or whatever - the problem remains the same - however,
as I said, just in LibreOffice.
