In order to reproduce:

[1] Create a new text document and insert 2 small images.

[5] In this toolbar select Graphics in Navigate By drop-down menu.

I noticed that moving to a table when a drawing object is selected does not show the cursor in the moved to table as expected. The patch for this bug report also fixes this as well.

For sure the move navigation needs more attention.
