1. When selecting a group or rows or columns, there is no handle at the beginning of the row to drag them up or down.
2. Cursor border of the selected cell is always black, making it very hard to see on dark backgrounds and impossible to see on black background.
Here is a small video (600kb) that illustrates the problems:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select rows
2. Try to drag them down
There is no handle. The handle is only at the end of the table.
Have point (handle) to drag the entire rows / columns at the beginning of the row.
User Profile Reset: No
The second problem is even more important. Selection cursor being black is very hard to see on dark backgrounds. Normally it should become white if the selected cell is dark so it can be easily spotted.
I agree with the suggested changes, but isn't this "bug" more of an enhancement request?
No, because in older versions of LibreOffice I remember they were working correctly. Both actually.
These issues appear in LO v.188.8.131.52 RC1 as well, just as described above.

I tried several older versions down to 3.3.0 and the fill handle was never visible when whole rows were selected.
Let's consult the UX team on how exactly the representation should change.
The black on black issue is reported as bug 108240
I tried too older LO versions and indeed the fill handle is always black on Win10. Still I am pretty sure I had it working correctly at some point in time with an older LO version, perhaps on Win XP or Win 7, or perhaps with some different display setup like different open GL or Direct X, not sure.
MS Excel shows the/antoher handle left of the first cell, also not a perfect solution since it has a very tiny hotspot. As a user I'd expect to be able to enlarge the column height at the leftmost static column but in case of a selection some means to increase everywhere. Drawback is that a (small) range selection wont work smoothly anymore with the enlarge-everywhere option together with the handle. So the question goes to the devs, what can we do?
Dear Tyr Antilles,
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.

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
