Description Mikko Vedru 2013-08-29 13:09:04 UTC
Way to reproduce:
1. Copy (Ctrl-C) the content of one cell (preferably somewhere in the middle of different full cells)
2. Go to another cell
3. Paste (Ctrl-V) and see that the content has been pasted and that this cell is now selected
4. Press Shift and Right/Left/Up/Down arrow buttons to select neighbouring cells.
5. See that the selection goes terribly wrong, selecting all the cells to the very top.

Hi Mikko, thanks for reporting.

Reproducible with:

Version 3.3.4

Not reproducible in Aoo 4.0

Changed status to NEW.
Set up the version to older in production, 4.0.6. (only 4.0.5.rc2 selectable)

You are right annoying, though it should not I am used to it.

I can not find but maybe it was reported before.

Bug 87388 is a duplicate.

I have verified this in LO and LO on OS X.

The bug does NOT exist in OO 4.0.1 or OOo 3.3.0.
