Description ken 2016-06-26 20:05:21 UTC
Whether I create the table with the keyboard (my preference) or the mouse (to provide a more comprehensive bug report), the cursor disappears until I switch away and then back.
Comment 1 Buovjaga 2016-07-02 19:24:11 UTC
Has it always behaved like this or did it start with an update to some version?
Could you copy & paste here the information in your Help - About LibreOffice?
Comment 2 Aron Budea 2016-07-07 13:39:58 UTC
Reproduced with LibreOffice,, master build (id: 9fee132c18b658c9ea9fb1114c1fefa56b57532a) in Windows 7, with default and GL rendering alike.
Not reproduced with => regression
