Description NISZ LibreOffice Team 2020-03-24 11:33:46 UTC
Created attachment 158925 [details]
Example file from Writer

Attached document contains a frame placed in the document header that contains a large table with text contents.
This table contents cannot be highlighted with the mouse, only with keyboard.
If the same frame is placed into the document body the table contents can be highlighted with the mouse.
This seems to happen because the header height is smaller than the table height, and the text in the table is floating above the document body.

Steps to reproduce:
1.	Open attached document in Writer
2.	Try to select the table text that is in the header by dragging the mouse.

Actual results:
Only one line can be selected by double clicking instead of all contents with mouse drag.

Expected results:
All contents can be selected with mouse drag.
