Description ebeb 2009-07-13 09:34:00 UTC
When editing text in Draw, I assume it works as in other applications including OO Writer. If you start editing text, type in mutiple words spearated by spaces. Then double click on a word. Now the whole word get selected. Now when I hold the mouse button after doublle clicking, I expect that I can select the rest of the words in a whole-word-by-word-manner. But this doesn't work. It just keeps the first word selected. As explained, this works in Writer and other Win applications. I'm not sure if this is really a bug or rather a feature request. This depends on how you initially specified your requirements on that feature.

Same with CALC in "Ooo 3.1.0 WIN XP multilingual version German UI activated [OOO310m11 (Build 9399)]" I also see this as an Enhancement, although the inconsistence really is worrying. Pls. also see Issue 53722!

This one is a DUP of "Bug 87553 - Cannot double-click and drag to select multiple words". @reporter: Please feel free to reopen this Bug if you find evidence that we have an independent issue here (for example because the fix for the other bug does not work for you). *** This issue has been marked as a duplicate of issue 87553 ***
