After opening a spreadsheet downloaded from the Internet (in read-only) mode, the user cannot select any text using keyboard navigation.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download a spreadsheet (e.g., https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5382278/bin/ncomms14845-s2.xlsx)
2. Open in read-only mode.
3. Press F2 to edit a cell.
4. Use the arrow keys to navigate within the cell.
5. Use shift + arrow keys to select text within the cell.
Arrow keys to not move the cursor position within the text, despite a cursor being visible and flashing.
User can navigate the cell text using arrow keys.
User can highlight text using arrow keys and shift key modifier.
User Profile Reset: Yes
Read-only does not mean "cannot copy". A read-only document should still have all the regular functionality for copying text when reviewing a cell's contents.
A work around is to use the mouse to select text.

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
