It is not only not possible to select multiple lines when a picture is in the document (haven't tested this), but selection of multiple text boxes and other drawing objects is also not possible.
My special case: Pictures (png) in header of document; text, text boxes and lines in the body of document. It is not possible to select multiple text boxes and lines with shift + mouseclick, unless you delete the pictures in the header.
If you try to select muliple elements without deleting the pictures first, then the cursour jumps into the header and the first picture from left to right is selected.
