Description Amir Adar 2015-01-29 12:07:46 UTC
When using numbered headings (of any level) in a writer document, and trying to delete a numbered heading paragraph located below a table, which is located below another numbered heading paragraph, the whole table is deleted. When pressing Ctrl+Z, the table is restored.

To reproduce:
1. Create a numbered heading
2. Create a table underneath the heading
3. Create another numbered heading underneath the table
4. Press “backspace” until the heading paragraph is completely deleted

Expected result:
The heading paragraph should be empty. The cursor should move to the last cell in the table, without deleting anything.

Actual result:
The whole table is deleted.

I'm using Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon edition, 32-bit. I managed to reproduce on both the "master" and "fresh" versions of LO.

Reproducible with LO, Win 8.1.

Note to step 4: To reproduce this bug you need to put the cursor at the end of the heading underneath the table and then to press the Backspace key.

In 4.3.0 and 4.4.7 on Win the backspacing gets me inside the table.
In 6.2 I do not move inside the table, but do not delete the table either.
