Description Telesto 2017-02-16 15:18:11 UTC
Writer jumps back to start of the table when trying to select the next table row if first row contains large embedded table.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open attached file
2.Configure the zoom level in such way that "INTO THIS CORNER" isn't visible at the top of the document. 
3.Select the first table row of the orange table with the mouse by dragging from "START HERE SELECTION" towards "INTO THIS CORNER" until the first row is selected (the experienced selection issues are already reported: bug 106043 and bug 105343)
4. Scroll down with the mouse scroll wheel with the left mouse button pressed and mouse pointer somewhere above purple table (trying to select the next table row of the orange table). 

Actual Results:  
Writer keeps jumping back to the beginning of the orange table

Expected Results:
It should be no problem to select the second table row of the orange table

Reproducible: Always

First I was having trouble: it only selected the *first column*. Then I managed to continue selecting the whole thing after the first column was selected. But yes, it is behaving strangely.

Dear Telesto,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
