Description sasha.libreoffice 2011-03-31 05:56:01 UTC
To reproduce this problem:
- start Writer
- create table with 2 column and 200 rows (it will about 6 pages size)
on first page place mouse cursor outside table to left (slightly left from left margin of table so that arrow --> appears)
- click mouse and try to select rows in table up to end of table

Rows on first page selects without problem, but we can not go to next page
if we move mouse downscreen, page begin jump endless and not go to second page
if we scroll with mouse wheel then page scrolls, but rows not select and when move mouse, page jumps to first page

produced on Mandriva 64 bit and windows XP 32 bit on LibreOffice 3.3.2 and OpenOffice 3.3.1

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.4.0RC1  – WIN7  Home Premium  (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:11)]". Instead of scrolling  when end of visible area has been reached first selected row becomes unselected, then second and so on until all has become unselected, then selection (highlighting) starts again from row 1 while mouse cursor remains at the bottom of the screen.

For me that behavior is unintuitive, it should be similar to the one I see highlighting cells after click into a cell and then moving mouse pointer down with pushed left button.

Funny thing, when I select zoom 20% (all pages visible) I can select all rows. After having finished, the highlighting will flash (switch on / off /on ...) for several seconds or even minutes.  

I saw you assigned in similar table bug reports

Reproducible with LO (Win 8.1).

It is even impossible to scroll down on the first page.  And following this it is also not possible to go to the next pages.
