When selecting a block of text to spellcheck, the direction of selection makes the difference between correct spelling error detection and false positives.
Steps to Reproduce:
Create a new document. Enter the following two lines of text.
Do not literally type the text in brackets. Instead, press those keys.
This is a test.[press Enter]
This is az test.[press shift up arrow]
All text should now be highlighted. Click spellcheck tool button. Spellcheck finds no errors.
Deselect all text. Select all text with the mouse by clicking at the end of the text (lower right) and dragging to the left and up. Select the Tools menu and click "Spelling and Grammar" (optionally, press F7). Spell check finds no errors.
Deselect all text. Select all text from upper left to lower right using either keyboard or mouse. Use any method to do a spellcheck. Now the spelling error is detected.
Dialog box pops up that says "Spellcheck is complete."
Expected to be shown "az" as a misspelled word.
User Profile Reset: No, I have repeated this bug on other people's machines with older versions of LibreOffice.
