Description wickles 2023-08-23 18:47:36 UTC
Sometimes when I navigate cells using keyboard arrows the apparent cell selection will lag behind where the cell cursor actually went, sometimes updating after a moment or a few seconds, or sometimes never.

Behavior seems to depend on spreadsheet contents.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open or create a spreadsheet with some various types and sizes of data.
2. Navigate with the keyboard arrow keys.
3. Observe cell selection vs cell cursor position.

Actual Results:
Selection lags behind cursor.

Expected Results:
Selection and cursor are the same.

Reproducible: Sometimes

User Profile Reset: No

I was not able to reproduce in safe mode. However restoring my user profile to defaults did not resolve the issue outside of safe mode.

Wickles and David, can you reproduce in 7.5 as well? Wondering if bug 155128 is the same.

On macOS 14.0 now, I cannot reproduce on any version -- tested on 7.5.7, 7.6.0, and 7.6.2. Maybe it was a kernel/driver issue?

For me this bug _seems_ to have gone away after upgrading from to I have macOS 13.6 (Ventura) on an M2 Pro Mac.
Comment 8 David Ripley 2023-10-08 07:33:21 UTC
I tested again with and the issue is resolved.
