Description mrosin 2004-11-22 07:21:37 UTC
Text selection in text boxes dependent on font "visibility". If you want to
select a block of text in a text box it cannot easily be done with only the
arrow buttons. Start with cursor at upper left corner of text, then select rest
of line and go down all with keyboard only. If part of the height of the last
line descends below the bottom of the text box it cannot be selected with the
down arrow but it works if you use shift-right arrow. It is as if OO cannot
“see†a half-occluded line even though it is perfectly readable.
