Description marc 2017-08-22 13:28:03 UTC
really annoying:

selection of word through dragging of mouse from left over word disappears if followed by mouse right click (to copy the word, e.g.) 

no prob if word is selected by dragging mouse from right or double-clicking...

Can you precise your OS and the LO version?
Did you install LO with a fresh profile?

You can't confirm your own bugs. Moving it back to UNCONFIRMED until someone else confirms it.
Comment 4 Xisco Faulí 2017-09-29 08:43:52 UTC
Thank you for reporting the bug.
it seems you're using an old version of LibreOffice.
Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.

> mouse selection problem still not fixed in version 6.0.1.1. (xubuntu latest)

Does it happen with other programs like gerrit in Xubuntu or only LibreOffice?
