Description Robert Gonzalez MX 2016-01-08 21:52:21 UTC
When editing text in impress the keyboard keys “Home” and “End” don’t work.

Steps to reproduce:

Create a new impress presentation
Select layout Title Slide
Click to add some text, but at the end of typing press the “home” keyboard key
The cursor doesn’t move
As a workaround press ctrl-left arrow as many times to reach the beginning of the text
Then press the “end” keyboard key
The cursor doesn’t move

Thanks for filing Robert.
I confirm the problem in Version:

In 3.3.0 one can simply use Home/End. So it's a regression..

@joel: it looks a bit like that issue yes. I do not expect Impress and Calc use the same editing code here.

Ciao - Cor

Minor: Can slow down but won't prevent high quality work;
Medium: Default is low but regression bumps it up.

Any productive work totally comes to a grinding halt b/c of this bug. I'm working on my FOSDEM slides and I'm suffering
Comment 5 Robert Gonzalez MX 2016-01-30 18:20:40 UTC

I just tested the 5.1 RC3

Build ID: 5e3e00a007d9b3b6efb6797a8b8e57b51ab1f737
CPU Threads: 8; OS Version: Windows 6.2; UI Render: GL; 
Locale: es-MX (es_MX)

And the problem is still present

As a workaround ctrl-home and ctrl-end will help with the editing.
Comment 7 Adolfo Jayme 2016-02-03 10:15:36 UTC
Backported to the 5-1-0 branch, so that it will appear in RC4/Final:
Comment 8 Pedro Neves 2016-02-19 20:35:45 UTC

This bug It's still present in Tested in Linux (Kubuntu 15.10 and KaOS).
Comment 9 Robert Gonzalez MX 2016-02-19 21:25:12 UTC

Exactly the same problem here with version "LibreOffice 10m0(Build:3)" on Arch Linux.

System: x86_64.
Comment 11 V Stuart Foote 2016-03-05 02:15:10 UTC
This was fixed for the 5.1.1 release, and backported to 5.1.0 but there was not build done.
