Could you elaborate on that? Write steps to reproduce your problem? Where and when it happens?
Comment 2 kalou 2012-06-24 18:42:52 UTC
I'm confused, this happens in "LibreOffice Writer" and not "LibreOffice Draw". In "LibreOffice Writer", you can not select multiple elements with the "Shift". Why?

I created few text and callout fields in Writer. Then selected some of them with shift without problem.

But if you make frame, text-frame or insert picture or some object in writer you don't select mutliple element for a copy or align the objects together. 

(sorry for my english).

I had no problems while selecting few object types you mentioned and aligning them. Could you attach any example documents where you have this problem?

Confirmed with:
LO 3.5.4.2 
Build ID: own W7 debug build
Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit

Could not multi select with attached document. Similar to bug 35355.

Reproduced on Libo 4 Version 4.0.0.0.beta1 (Build ID: 87906242e87d3ddb2ba9827818f2d1416d80cc7)
Ubuntu 12.04 64bits

Work-around, 
clic on "First arrow" on draw toolbar, and drag a zone outside the objects to select, and then it works.

Another example of this bug that works in Writer 3.6.4.3

This is still a problem in:
LO v. 3.6.4.3
Ubuntu 12.10 - 32 bits

How can we get attention to this one? I can't believe there isn't more people in the CC list - maybe there is a dup with more people?

Oh. This is probably a duplicate of Bug 37960.
Please join the conversation (or lack thereof) there.
