The libreeoffice documentation (https://help.libreoffice.org/Impress/Shortcut_Keys_for_Impress#Shortcut_Keys_when_Editing_Text) explain that when editing a text in a slide show the combination [Ctrl+Shift+End] go and select text to end of document.
However, when editing a text on a slide, Ctrl+Shift+End doesn't select the text in the slide, but move the slide to the end of the slide stack.
[Ctrl+Shift+Home] doesn't work either.

Yes, docs confirmed.

1) Opened 47 slide presentation (ODP)
2) Clicked into text area on 2nd slide, and then pressed Ctrl+Shift+End
RESULT: Text box/text area object was selected AND the current slide was moved to the end of the presentation.
Status -> NEW
(If this is an error in the docs (and not in the program), then we shouuld change Component to 'Documentation')
I think, that this is not an error in the documentation.
In previous versions of Impress the behavior was as explained in the documentation. This behavior has changed in 5.x.
I know it, because I usually used this combination of keys frequently.
Moreover, in writer the behavior is similar, and hasn't changed.
By other way, there aren't another way to select the text from one point to the end of the slide.

a nasty useability problem, IMHO
This seems to have begun at the below commit.

tdf#91909 Add shortcuts for MovePage actions
" It would also be useful to have uno commands for slide sorting like move slide up, move slide down, move slide to beginning, and move slide to end, so they can also appear in the menu bar with suitable shortcut keys. Are there presently shortcut keys for these operations as i couldnt find them in the customize dialog? "
That explains a lot :)
Possibly it is useful to make a distinction between text editing mode and not?

Movement of slides was introduced with enhancements of bug 91909 -- where Caolán later reverted use of the <Home> and the <End> keys for slide navigation as the shortcuts broke legacy text editing.
And here this remains a simple conflict with selected shortcuts--these <Ctrl>+<Shift>+[Home|Up|Down|End] text movement and selection text edit functions are still in conflict.
Pretty sure they are reserved inside edit engine -- and so got missed when reviewing Accelerators.xcu for use for slide movement shortcuts.
@Jay, Philippe -- if we can not isolate behavior of the Slide sorter pane from the active elements on the slide canvas then we have to change the chosen ShortCuts for slide movements.
Believe the newer feature should get new shortcuts. And the legacy (and arcane) assignments in edit engine (used in all modules) should be left alone.
Still an issue in 5.2 and master (and really annoying by the way, pushing importance). Furthermore to ctr+shift+home/end the text box should provide paragraph selection per ctrl+shift arrow.
The solution is simple: While in edit mode global shortcuts have to be ineffective.
would this help?
nonsense - don't do that Cor..
Any news? This is annoying as hell. It bites me every time. Anything we can do to help?
We have found a workaround until the bug gets fixed: in Tools->Customize, the Keyboard tab, look for the control-shift-home and end entries, and click delete for both of them. Of course this is only a workaround :)
Samuel & Giroll people
I can confirm this bug still present in Version: 22.214.171.124 Build ID: 40m0(Build:1).
Ctrl-Shift + xxx is definitely for selecting text and not for moving slides. This bug is indeed very annoying.
Please assign + fix.
