Description rossow 2007-02-27 02:15:48 UTC
When at bottom of document and do a select all it selects everything BELOW the
table of contents.

BUT when at the top of the document and do a select all it DOES selects all.

Sorry its taken me so long. I did a bit of work on it.
It seems that this document was originaly created as a MS Word document. Then
I've edited it in OpenOffice. So probably something to do with that.
I've created a NEW document in OpenOffice and it all works fine.

Sorry for logging a job... I'm just an overzealous Newbie.

Confirming with 2.2RC1 on WinXP - open attached doc, Ctrl-End, Ctrl-A - 
text at the beginning

"Table of Contents

Background	2"

is not selected
Comment 6 stefan.baltzer 2007-04-11 16:22:57 UTC
SBA: <Strg>A selects the section only. Hitting <Strg>A again selects the entire
text. I updated the summary to meet the findings. However, this is "unexpected"
because most users would not recognise that the cursor is within a section and a
second <Strg>A would be required. Besides, the "non-complete" selection would
only be visible when pasting or scrolling up to the documents first page.

SBA->AMA: As you said, this may root from the behavior of <Strg>A in tables
(There, the first "<Strg>A" selects the cell, the second the table, and only the
third time "<Strg>A" selects the entire document).
Please look after this one when reworking the selection behavior.

Maybe we have to rework this behavior but this will not happen as a bug fix for
We have to discuss and specify the meaning of "Ctrl-A" in tables, header/footer,
frames, sections etc.
