Description davidpbrown 2015-02-03 14:10:07 UTC
This looks to be a simple navigation-selection bug, that only appears after a paste to cell is confirmed immediately beforehand.

1. Copy any cell; paste it back; and enter to confirm that.
2. Press SHIFT+Down-Arrow.

Result: The behaviour of the [SHIFT+Down-Arrow] is not as usual; instead of selecting the current cell along with the next below it, the focus jumps up to A2.

Interpretation: It is as if A1 was taken to be the previous focus rather than the true current cell.

I think this is a duplicate of https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=56098, please if you are not agree reopen it.

I don't see duplicate of 56098. That bug suggested 
>Paste Special options after cut incorrect
>It will be available in LibreOffice 4.0.3.
That was back 2013-04-05

This behaviour in 89079 is not consistent with the normal selection option available from the current cell. The paste operation is complete; it is incidental that a paste operation occurred, just prior to the user then wanting to use the Shift+Down-Arrow to select two cells. 

The only difference now is I see this does occur on all Shift+Arrow keys after a paste operation is completed.

This is not a feature, this is a bug. If that obscure feature is useful, then put it to alt key selection.

Reopening, if only so the devs thoughts on this are made clear for all those in future who stumble over the same oddity.

Maybe duplicate of 47818

Not a duplicate: I confirm the issue is still present in I followed the steps to reproduce provided in comment 0.

Note, "paste it back" means to paste the content over the cell from which it was copied; but the same bug (selection starting at A2) appears wherever I paste the cell.

Can you please test if there are not more issues with Ctr/Shift + Dwn/Up + Arrow navigations?
I think I see them often after having made a copy from a selection or so.
So it could be a more generic problem?
