When the cursor (that is, the mouse arrow) is in a text box that has some text in it, and I use the keyboard (ctrl+enter) to navigate to that textbox, the cursor acts as though the left mouse button is clicked. To recreate: 1. Enter a few lines/bullets of text in a slide 2. Move the (mouse) cursor in the middle of some of the text you just selected 3. If the textbox is still in edit mode, press the "escape" key. (4. If the mouse's "select" function is selected in the drawing toolbar, you may have to repeat steps 5 and 6 so that the cursor is set to "text") 5. Type ctrl+enter until the appropriate text box is selected 6. Use the arrow keys to navigate up, down, left, right, etc. You'll notice that the text is selected from the point where the cursor is hovering, and that you can't get more than one arrow-move away from the cursor. Workarounds: - Click on the text in the textbox after navigating there using the keyboard (thereby rendering keyboard navigation redundant) - Ensure that at all times the mouse is never left hovering over any text. I'm still new at submitting bugs, so I apologize for any mistakes I've made with selecting variuos options. I'm using Windows XP SP2. I also noticed this behaviour with OOo 2.0.3. I tried looking for similar bug reports.

I checked with "2.0.2 German version WIN XP: [680m5(Build9011)]" and can not confirm that problem, will test 2.0.4 soon. @realgrouchy: please specify your Platform and OS!

I can reproduce the bug. Please have a look.

There is also another way to get this behavior. - write some text - select the textbox - put the mouse cursor into the textbox - press f2 to change into the edit mode - use shift and cursor keys to mark the text.
