Description grofaty 2013-10-02 18:28:14 UTC
Created attachment 86999 [details]

Case 1:
1. Open new presentation in Impress.
2. In Slides bar click on first slide and move mouse down.
What happens: First slide is copied to new slide.
Expected: Nothing should happen. Coping should be done using CTRL+mouse move.

Case 2:
3. Click on second slide and move mouse at the top.
What happens: Second slide is moved above the first slide.
This is expected, because no CTRL key was pressed. Working fine.

Case 3:
4. Click on first slide and press CTRL key and hold. Move mouse down the bottom.
What happens: Slide gets copied to third slide.
This is expected, because CTRL key is pressed. Working fine.

So Case 1 is strange inconsistent behaving - no CTRL pressed and new slide is copied. I think the Case 1 correct behavior is to display mouse icon with crossed circle and no action done - see attachment.
Operating System: Windows XP
