Description Heiko 2019-10-25 15:53:21 UTC
Mulitple selection of frames e. g. for changing their position or properties like bordercolor/-style in one step is - unlike shapes - not possible yet.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create new writer document
2. insert two or more frames
3. select two or more frames to change their position in one step

Actual Results:
Selection of two frames (usually by holding shift or ctrl key) will not work

Expected Results:
Frames should behave like shapes where multi selection or grouping are possible.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Yes, don't see a reason why frames shouldn't since multi-selection is possible (though cumbersome) for shapes and text boxes.
