Description Tom B 2016-02-15 15:08:56 UTC
This seems to have been introduced between 5.0 and 5.1. Pressing the Home or End key should (and used to) move the cursor to the start/end of the current line.

This still works in Writer, however, in Impress, Home/End has stopped working entirely. Pressing them has no effect. page up/page down keys still work as expected.

Don't have a install at the moment--if anyone else wants to check.


1. open new Impress document
2. take title slide default
3. click and enter text in title
4. click and enter text in text box
5. navigate to title
6. <end> key move to end of title?
7. <home> key move to beginning of title?
8. navigate to text box
9 add multi lines of text
10. cursor key navigate between lines
11. <home> key move to beginning of line?
12. <end> key move to end of line
13. change line repeat moves beginning/end

Seems to work correctly.
