Description Steffen 2019-08-14 10:01:12 UTC
The current cell or cell range is not highlighted in the spreadsheet view.

Actual Results:
No actions needed - the bug occurs after program start

Expected Results:
No results (see above)

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
When the window is minimized and restored (a redraw forced?) the current cell is highlighted correctly. The bug also appears in safe mode.

I checked the problem on other spreadsheets. It looks like the current cell/cell range is not highlighted WHEN the grid is set off.

Wrong active cell highlighting

In the screenshot C7 is active, but F13 highlighted. This changes e.g. after resizing the window. 
The behavior is independent of grid visibility.

We can confirm this problem.
The problem occurs in LO Calc for Linux (in our company Arch Linux and Debian Testing), Windows 10 is not affected.

The sample file (see above) contains 2 sheets:

1. sheet = Bug present

After opening the file, the last selected cell is highlighted. If another cell is then selected, the highlighting is not updated.
The newly selected cell is not highlighted, but it is active. If you write to the cell, the cursor flickers hectically.

2. sheet = Bug not present

Strange: Here the cell selection is updated as expected. The only difference is that the push buttons have been deleted.

GTK and GTK3 only. @Caolán, I thought you might be interested in this issue...
