Description joel.tuberosa 2012-11-12 10:23:45 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Copy a cell with ctrl-c
2. Move 1 cell downer with the down-arrow key
3. Paste the copied cell with ctrl-v
4. Hold shift and press the up-arrow to select the current cell and the upper one.

Current behavior:
This selects all cells comprised betweed the last selection and A1. For example, if I do this on B2, this will select A1, A2, B1, B2.

Expected behavior:
I was expecting this manipulation to select only 2 cells. Like if you do this without the copy-paste steps (1-3).

Looks like this could be explained by the behavior I listed in bug 62436.  After a paste, the next selection range seems to be erroneously selected based on cell A1.

You can test this without even inserting anything:
1. Select any random cell (C10 in this case)
2. Copy
3. Paste
4. Shift-right

It will select a range from your current cell(C10) to a cell wrongly based on A1.  Shift-right in this case takes us to A2, so C10:A2 will be selected.
