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...

Only in webview

I tested on 
Build ID: f05b0a6aaf8af5d78f9cad8bb953228cb0ce09f1

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.

Dear Telesto,

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.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

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 https://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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
