--- Comment #4 from V Stuart Foote <[hidden email]> ---
On Windows 10 Pro 64-bit en-US with
Version: (x64)
Build ID: fd8cfc22f7f58033351fcb8a83b92acbadb0749e
Locale: en-US (en_US)

<Ctrl>+<Alt>+<DOWN> or <UP> are defined and show in the Tools -> Customize:
Keyboard tab as assigned for Writer--they are not assigned globally.  So they
can already be reassigned if needed when conflicting with OS or DE assignments.

I just verified they do work correctly for Windows installs. Where in Writer,
make a list as individual paragraphs, then select just one...

<Ctrl>+<Alt>+<UP> does move the item up, <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<DOWN> moves the item
down the list.

Paragraphs with line breaks, and wrapped multiline paragraphs also move when
selected.  As do multiple selected paragraphs.  So is all is correct in LO.

As to changing the keyboard shortcut--IMHO the "three" key assignment to be
appropriate--as a two key <Alt>+<DOWN>/<UP> or <Ctrl>+<DOWN>/<UP> while
available, would cause inadvertent movement of selected text/paragraphs set
with <Shit>+<DOWN>/<UP> block selection.

Better to retain the positive control of a "three" key combo.


The <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<DOWN>/<UP> movement of selection has been that way forever.

I've added a musty old issue from OOo days --April 2007-- to the see also,
dealt with the <Shift>+<Down>/<UP> selection and affect on style of the
selected paragrapah when moving with <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<DOWN>/<UP> -- one of yours
Cor :-)


As an aside, I don't believe there is a keyboard accelerator or UNO keyboard
action to call the Sort dialog, to apply to a list of single entry paragraphs
as selected, but I don't think that is the issue being discussed.
