This behavior (losing cell selection) also occurs when switching to print preview and back to the current sheet.

Set "Hardware" to "All".

By the way, a selected/marked range also disappears in Writer when going to Print Preview and back! Should this behavior in Writer be another bug or can we set "Component" from "Calc" to "LibreOffice" or "UI"? I think all components of LibreOffice use a common code that causes this bug.

Confirmed in Version: 5.3.0.3

I asked a Calc dev and you should create a new report for the Writer issue.
