Description Luca Sardelli 2020-08-19 07:21:04 UTC
In Writer, I selected a small part of the text.
I deselected it, but the highlighted zone remained there even it the text was not anymore selected.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a few words;
2. Click some other area of the document to deselect.

Actual Results:
Nothing bad, only the previous highlighted area remains there.

Expected Results:
The selected area should be not highlighted

Reproducible: Sometimes

Dear Sirs,

I updated LO Version and since then, the hiccups never happened again.

Thank you for your work in fixing the wrong behaviour.

With best regards,
