Description Jay 2011-09-22 19:47:54 UTC
Click the first object.  Hold down shift, click the second.  The first is deselected.  Only one object can be selected at a time.

NOT reproducible with a WRITER document containing some shapes (smileys ...) and  "LibreOffice 3.4.3 RC2 - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:302)]" 

MAC specific?

Please save the time changing priority and use it to attach a sample document ;-)
Please attach a sample document here, too.

Sample document with 3 image objects

Try to select all 3 images to align them along a center axis.  Click the first.  Shift, click the second.  Sometimes the third one that you didn't click on is selected and the first is deselected.

Everything Works Fine

I can see the effect with reporter's document, but currently I can't find out what the different might be to my sample where everything works fine. Funny thing, when I copy / paste contents of my sample to reporter's one ability to select multiple of those objects becomes lost.

Any idea what the difference might be?
Comment 4 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2011-09-25 23:29:23 UTC
The difference is the presence of pictures.

This one is a DUP of
Bug 37960 - Shift click to select multiple drawings does not work if picture there
