This problem only occurs intermittently, and I have no clue why the expected behaviour works sometimes and not others; I can't find a distinct pattern, although I haven't looked at it exhaustively. To recreate this problem: 1. Open or create a presentation with at least five slides (enough so that they don't all show up on the slidebar - try 12). 2. Click on one slide, then scroll down/up (this behaviour tends to happen more frequenly when scrolling with the scroll bar), press and hold the shift key, then click another. Sometimes it will select the entire range of slides, but sometimes it will only select the most recently-selected slide. 3. Click on another slide, and keep selecting multiple slides in this way; it doesn't necessarily have to be when you scroll. Again, I'm not quite sure what the difference is when it (the preferred behaviour) does and doesn't work. Sometimes the slides quickly all highlight, but immediately deselect, except for the current one. - RG>

Reproducible. I have made a file with 12 slides. Selecting the first slide in slides pane and then the 11th (with Shift Click) shows the problem. It is most likely to be seen when the firdst or last slide is in the selection. Reassigned.

My colleague also encountered this problem and came to the conclusion that OpenImpress is not suitable for her. In my opinion this is a real usability issue.
