Bug reproduce calc file

In Calc, Impress or Draw, some kind of form control such as CheckBox can be stacked.

See attached Calc file with "Design Mode On" in Form control toolbar, you can see two "Check Box 1" and "2" are stacked.
Then  "Design Mode Off" in the same tool bar, following problem will occurs.

[Expected Result]
Both of "Check Box 1" and "Check Box 2" will work fine (when clicked, can be ON or OFF).

[Actual Result]
"Check Box 1" (not covered by "Check Box 2") works fine, but "Check Box 2" (covered by "Check Box 1") doesn't work (it can't be ON or OFF).

[Additional information]
In Writer, control can't be stacked (I think it is reasonable specification).
In MS Excel 2013 preview (or earlier version), stacked CheckBox works fine anytime.

I don't know this issue is a specification or not, but according to migrate from Microsoft Excel, stacked CheckBox should work fine.

Draw has Alt+Click to select an object, which is behind another one. Perhaps something similar is possible in Calc?

You can change the state of the checkbox in alive mode with keyboard. Press the tab-key until the check-box has focus. Then press space-bar to change its state.

Dear Naruhiko Ogasawara,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
