There's an aspect of the Customize Keyboard dialog that I don't understand. I'm on OS X.

In the dialog, a number of shortcut keys are displayed with a caret:


I can't tell what key the caret represents.

Is it Alt? Probably not. Posts here say that you can't assign Alt to shortcuts in OpenOffice.

Is it Ctrl? That would be my second guess, but it doesn't seem to work. For example, when I assign "About OpenOffice.org" to ^N, click OK, and press Ctrl-N in my document, no About dialog pops up. (Instead, the cursor moves down one line, which I guess must be the default behavior of Ctrl-N.)

So I'd like to know:
1. what the caret means
2. how to assign Ctrl- in keyboard shortcuts on OS X.

Thanks.
