Description:
Sorry really only reported libreoffice. the problem is in the additional selection in the status bar of the writer it is not working properly. all others when triggered work exactly as if you were using the shortcut keys minus the additional selection that is not working. Attach a screen capture.

I can' see, that anything happens, if I select one of those options. But I also don't know what should happen. I coudn't find any informations within LO help

I repro. When using Adding mode, it will clear the selection after a few adds or sometimes on the second add. Mouse selection is worse than keyboard selection.

I bibisected on Linux 42max, but got an incorrect result "lp#1204592: activate menues even earlier to reduce latency", which is a Linux-only commit. I can repro on Win as well.

For reference, the help for selection modes:
