Description Telesto 2018-05-07 16:05:32 UTC
Clicking on the table border will select the full table content instead of only selecting the border (used for cut/paste)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Impress
2. Insert a table
3. Deselect the table
4. Place the mouse cursor above the table (the text insert cursor appears)
5. Move the mouse to a table border, until the mouse arrow appears
6. Left click -> Table will be selecting including the table content (which makes cut/and paste of the content easy, but cut & paste of the full table hard)

7. Work around. Click insert the table first, and click the border next (except for bug 117484)

Actual Results:  
Table border with content gets selected

Expected Results:
Only the selection of the border without content

Reproducible: Always

        Fixes fdo#46186, The Table Remains in the defined writing mode.
        The table in impress is drawn under the rectangular are, on Selecting
        the table it was only selecting the rectangular area and not the cells
        inside, Making the layout to be as RTL which was mirroring the table.
        But, We need the table to be in RTL Writing mode and not mirroring the
        table. Now on applying my patch, If table is selected, it will select
        the entire cells inside which is the actual table and the functionality
        works fine.

Bug 85398 blames it as well.
