Description Stefan 2013-11-22 12:10:24 UTC
I am having plenty of problems with the "Outline text" box in Impress (the autolayout box featuring "Click to add text" on a new slide), including Copy, Cut & Paste, Undo, and Cursor Position, which can suddenly appear off the expected location between two letters. Most of it is difficult to reproduce, except the following issue:

Text does not disappear immediately on Edit -> Cut (Cmd-X)

I am on MacOSX 10.7 and have tried a variety of releases since 4.0.0, the latest being

How to reproduce:

(1) Open new Impress Presentation
(2) Insert -> Slide
(3) Click on "Click to add text" and type "Text"
(4) Mark the word "Text"
(5) Click Edit -> Cut (Cmd-X)

Result: The cursor jumps to the start of "Text", but the word "Text" is still visible.

(6) On additional keyboard input or mouse click at a location different from the word "Text", the word "Text" finally disappears.

Expected behavior: The word "Text" should disappear immediately after Cut.

Any text that is cut (cmd + x) should disappear immediately.
