Does it work if you disable OpenGl ? -> https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/OpenGL

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the issue is still present

Connected mouse & it works fine left-handed.
It is the Dell TouchPad that has issues.

Have not tried turning of OpenGL yet.
Though it should work regardless.
I have had no issues with other Windows Programs.

Seems the Touchpad is having issues.
Looks to be a common issue with Dell Laptops.

Could be the Logitech Driver - setpoint.
In the past Logitech did not get along well with Touchpads.

Then there's the fact I use a left-handed mouse.

I keep trying things and...

Best solution so far is to plug in the Logitech Device when using Libre Office.

Got to love computers - NOT!

I think this should be investigated separately, since bug 125201 is on Ubuntu and this one here on Windows, and this sounds rather like a platform-specific issue.

Dear Liz,

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
