Description Cor Nouws 2017-11-24 13:14:08 UTC
I'll attach a test document

The content of cells A1 and A4 have includes an email address as hyperlink.
Give such a cell the focus.
Put cursor in Input Line (Ctrl+Shift+F2)
Select some text, possibly unselect, and change selection
 > The selection in the cell, is not the same as what is done in the Input Line.

Found in and in a fresh nightly build:

test file with cells, that have as content also an email address as link.

Note: when there is an email address as hyperlink in a cell, one puts the focus on that cell, hits Ctrl+M, so that the hyperlink is removed, it is still shown in the Input Line.

Problem is already in (Win) and still with latest master on Linux.
Comment 5 Buovjaga 2018-07-09 19:39:05 UTC
My previous result claiming 3.6 was OK was apparently wrong.

Bibisected with Linux 43all to range https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/log/?qt=range&q=85c6244b85b29c1d2bb9d89b62e9512dd65378b5...558b5ea32a99654dcb63526f107726f7aec4747f

Dear Cor Nouws,

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 http://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

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

Warm Regards,
