Description Winfried Donkers 2011-10-18 01:52:36 UTC
Created attachment 52458 [details]
comment hidden, mouse position is sketched

When moving your mouse over a comment-mark (the red square), the comment shows.
When copying a block of selected cells, the source block stays marked with a dashed border.
When moving the mouse over the comment-mark of a cell within the dashed border, the comment shows for a split second and then is hidden behind the block marked with the dashed border (see attachment).
Comment 1 Winfried Donkers 2011-10-18 03:12:56 UTC
Behaviour also occurs when cell with comment is not in bordered area, but location of shown comment is (partly or completely).
Comment 2 A (Andy) 2013-01-02 17:52:40 UTC
reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

Simple step to reproduce:
1. Select cell A1
2. Insert comment with some text
3. Press Esc or click anywhere
4. Copy (ctrl-C) cell A1
5. Hover mouse cursor to cell A1

Reproduced in LO,, with Ubuntu 12.04 x86

But I didn't see that in AOO 3.4.1 and 4.1.0
