it needs to be bisected with repo 5.1...

in my case, I only reproduce it when the window is maximized and the sidebar hidden...

It appears only on Web View, not on normal view. See on video.
Maybe it is normal to have shifting in a web view.

tdf#94679 Writer: fix lost selection with Shift-PageDown

Adding Cc: to Justin Luth

Sorry about this Justin - this is one of those weird "unmasking something" types of things again...
Comment 6 Justin L 2020-06-05 17:22:56 UTC
Yeah - I'm not going to do anything about this one. Only a UI guru should touch things like this - I shouldn't have done anything in the first place.
Comment 7 Buovjaga 2020-06-06 07:35:15 UTC
I bibisected the originally reported brief jump of the selection with Linux 43max. Result was https://git.libreoffice.org/core/+/e2eda70f2746f08376d8cdf5e5360df217335aef%5E!/
startcenter: fdo#72469: Thumbnails also for other file types than ODF.

Sounds weird, but I did double-check it vs. previous commit.
Comment 8 Justin L 2020-06-06 12:11:52 UTC
Yeah, even the "cause" of bug 94679 was weird. That's why this probably needs to be look at by someone of Caolan's caliber.
