Description Frantisek Erben 2012-11-06 09:21:55 UTC
Created attachment 69598 [details]

How to reproduce:
Load included .odt, go to page 6 try to select text with mouse (click and move):„PDF was not resized properly when used for web marketing, so that, when viewed on an iPhone, the logo looked like one of the firm's planes had landed on it.“.
It doesn't matter if you select text from top of text to bottom or vrom bottom to top.

What happens:
As you can see on the ScreenRecord, at least every 2nd attempt ends with bad selection (jump to begin of document unexpectedly) :-(

What should happens:
Standard text selection.

Select only via tripleclick (whole paragraph) or via Shift+arrows - realy annoying user unfiendly

Additional information:
It occure and I reproduced it on Mac OS X and Windows 7, so there is high probability that it occure on all platforms.

Aha! I can confirm that this behavior occurs. In addition, it is a duplicate of another bug that has already been confirmed. It is because it is a table of 2 cells that span multiple pages, and the table headings repeat. If you create a table where headings do not repeat, and the cells expand over multiple pages, you will not experience the same issue of "jumping".
