Description George 2018-09-24 13:29:05 UTC
Another bug in the "Comment" boxes is when I'm editing one. If I'm going to delete or rewrite a portion or all of the text, the usual method is to click and hold the left button on the mouse and roll the mouse over the text to change. but when I release the button, the software does NOT release as it should and the selection keeps changing as I move the mouse around(as if I'm still holding the button down).
 This is NOT intermittent.  It is ALWAYS like this but it can be worked around enough to get the job done

Reproducible but not always in :
Version: (x64)
Build ID: 89a60912bba7ffd6f65ea99f4664f343c5025c95
CPU threads: 2; OS: Windows 6.1; UI render: default; 
TinderBox: Win-x86_64@42, Branch:master, Time: 2018-10-01_03:18:33
Locale: bs-BA (bs_BA); Calc: threaded

It is the same in older versions and also in
OOo 3.3.0 so I change it to Inherited from OOo.
Win 7
