Description Danil 2018-12-18 18:39:03 UTC
Manual says (for grouping): 1. Select the objects together that you want to group. Hold down Shift while you click the individual objects.

I hold down Shift and click picture. Nothing. I stop holding, select picture, then hold Shift again and try to select another picture. Selection cancels. Wut? 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hold Shift
2. Try to select more than 0 objects
3. F yourself

Actual Results:
1. Hold Shift
2. Try to select more than 0 objects
3. F yourself

Expected Results:
Nothing will be selected.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

I also can not reproduce.

SVM/BMP Images held in frames on the Writer document canvas simply are not multi-selectable. 

The object is handled differently in Draw/Impress where the <Shift> toggles the selection.

The other Draw objects "shapes" and "text boxes" on Writer canvas are multi-selectable with the <Shift> control.
