The basic macro editor repeatedly replots the edit frame when code selection (highlighting) changes. Not only is it extremely annoying, it makes it very difficult to accurately to select code for actions such block copies, deletes, etc. It is bad enough that sometimes the wrong code is deleted.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Tools/Macros/Edit Macros.
2. Select a module for editing.
3. Use the mouse to click/drag to select text.
Code frame is repeatedly cleared and re-plotted.
Text should be highlighted without the entire code frame re-plotting.

Most likely fixed in LibreOffice 5.3.7 and 5.4.3. A pre-release is available here:
