Screenshot showing the problem

In LO 7.5 master, if you add a table in Impress and click the table cells, you'll see the bounding box around the text.

Is this a new feature or a bug?

See attached image for more details.

It should be noted that this is also affecting all shapes in Impress.

Thanks for the bisect.

However, having bounding boxes inside tables were not the intended behavior of the bug report. This seems to be a side effect of the proposed fix.

I commented about this in bug 94223 to see their opinion.

IMO this is actually a regression.

we can turn it off for tables, without affecting the original issue, that's no big deal
