Description Telesto 2018-07-11 15:29:09 UTC
Selected content gets deleted when attempting to indent it using tab. Useful when moving multiple lines

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Insert to paragraph's with some text, say: hello
3. Select both of them & press TAB
4. Indent, but the content is gone

Actual Results:
Content gets deleted & a tab for a single paragraph

Expected Results:
The selected content gets deleted by pressing tab. I personally would prefer a tab for both paragraph's & remaining content. So Word behavior

Reproducible: Always

I woul change the bug summary to: "Selected Lines gets deleted ..." because I agree that delation of the second line is the problem.
