Description stragu 2015-11-29 11:19:00 UTC
Created attachment 120871 [details]
file to test bug

Steps to reproduce:
- select one clipart by clicking on it
- try to add the second clipart to the selection by using shift + click

Expected result:
- both pictures are selected

Actual result:
- none of the pictures are selected

Note that there is no problem when doing the same for the two rectangle shapes.

I don't seem to have had this issue for ages until today... It felt like a flashback of the old long-standing Bug 37960. I thought it actually was a regression on the corresponding bugfix, but the behaviour is different. The attached file is actually the same example document as for Bug 37960.

The underlying problem is, that images in Writer are no drawing objects. Bug 34438 is the oldest and a comprehensive one of all the duplicates.
