Description Alan 2018-02-17 00:16:51 UTC
When editing text in a cell in Calc by pasting some text the cursor is at the beginning of the pasted text and not at the end. This has changed since Libreoffice 5 where the cursor was placed at the end of the pasted text.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Put some text in a cell in Calc
2.Copy some other text from somewhere else
3.Edit the cell in step 1, move somewhere in the middle
4.Paste the copied text

Actual Results:  
cursor is at the beginning of the pasted text

Expected Results:
cursor should be at the end of the pasted text, as was the behavior in previous versions of Calc

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Is this a duplicate of Bug 114675 (Pasting text leaves the cursor in front of the pasted text)?
Comment 3 Eike Rathke 2018-03-02 19:04:22 UTC
It is.
