Description Gordo 2015-03-02 01:16:52 UTC
1. New Text Document.
2. Insert Table 2x2.
3. In cell A1 Insert Table 2x2.
4. Delete nested table.
5. Click mouse in cell where nested table used to be.
6. No cursor, but can type and cursor reappears.

If the document is saved, closed, and reopened, then the cursor is visible.
Comment 1 Octavio Alvarez 2015-03-02 06:41:33 UTC
Confirmed in, Debian Sid. The cursor disappears as specified.

However, did three more tests, inserting the table before, between and after a letter in the A1 cell. Did it with the same steps but inserting the following step:

Step 2.5: According to 1 of 3 cases, type 'a' and position the cursor before or after the letter. Or, type 'aa' and place the cursor between the letters.

Inserting the table after the letter the bug does also occur.

Inserting the table before the letter the bug does not occur.

Inserting the table between two letters the bug does not occur.
