Sorry for my first report, it was my first time.

the bug is reproductible on LO 3.6 on MAc and Windows.

Tutorial to get the bug :

insert a table, type some text in a cell, then select it and try to drag/drop it to another cell : it is not possible. (it is possible in Writer)
If you drop the word outside the table it becomes a text-box.
