Description Thomas Lendo 2018-10-03 09:22:35 UTC
The Navigator loses multi-selection of node items one second after right-clicking on the selection. For me, there's nothing in the context menu that shouldn't be usable through multi-selection and that justifies the disappearing of the multi-selection.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open or create a Writer document with several headings.
2. Open Navigator (F5) or go to the Navigator pane in the Sidebar.
3. Make sure that a heading is selected in the Navigator and not a table, hyperlink, etc.
4. Open the 'Content Navigation View' with the button at the bottom and left-most position in the Navigator button area.
5. Select multiple headings with ctrl + mouse clicks or shift + mouse clicks.
6. Right-click at one of the selected headings (not at another not-selected heading).

Actual result:
After about a second, the multi-selection disappears and only the heading is selected where the cursor is in the document.

Expected result:
The multi-selection doesn't disappear.

Repro on Win, not on Lin. Tested with attachment 145437 [details]

Multi-selection does not work for me in 6.1.2, but I guess that might be something Jim fixed for 6.2.0.

Hi Thomas and Buovjaga,

Bug 128285 is a duplicate of this bug report with a recently merged patch. I would have filed it under this one but didn't know it existed until just now while searching through recent list of untouched bugs.

Ok, fine, let's dupe this to it :)
