Description atterer 2008-03-28 13:12:06 UTC
When editing a slide, it is not possible to perform by-word selection of several words with the mouse. This is supported by most other software including OOo Writer, please also add it to Impress! To reproduce: Create a new slide, enter a sentence of text. Double-click on the first word, and keep the mouse button pressed after the second click. The first word is now selected. Drag the mouse right over the next word. Nothing happens, when I would expect the second word to also become selected. Using the keyboard, word-by-word selection is possible with Shift+Ctrl+Arrow right. Thanks for your work!

This is an enhancement. the writer is able to do this kind of selection. We should be consistent in the office.

This functionality is also still not available when editing Calc cell contents, as of v3.1.0.

System configuration: Laptop: HP Pavilion Entertainment PC OS: 32-bit Windows Vista Version - Ooo dev 3.2.0 DEV300m56 (build:9419) I was able to reproduce with these steps: 1. Create new presentation. I created an empty presentation. 2. Selected the Title Slide as the layout. 3. Type “the title slide” 4. Double-click on “the” and hold the button on the second click 5. Try to drag the mouse of the next word to the right Expected outcome: that the next word “title” is selected as well Actual outcome: nothing happens This is inconsistent with Writer. If you open up a new file in writer and type a do a something similar the next word will be selected as well.

Sorry, the last sentence of my previous comment is confusing. This is what I meant to say: If you attempt this using similar steps in Writer, the the next word will be selected.

Erik Olsen 9/11/10 Replicated steps provided in atterer 's bug description,using computers with given specs: Hardware used: Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600) (7600.win7_gdr.100618-1621) Language: English (Regional Setting: English) System Manufacturer: HP-Pavilion Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 945 Processor (4 CPUs), ~3.0GHz Memory: 8192MB RAM Operating System: Windows Vista™ Home Premium (6.0, Build 6001) Service Pack 1 (6001.vistasp1_gdr.100608-0458) Language: English (Regional Setting: English) System Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard Processor: AMD Turion Dual-Core RM-70 (2 CPUs), ~2.0GHz Memory: 2814MB RAM Open Office Version used: OOo-dev 3.3.0 OOO330m3 Build: 9519 Replication steps: 1. Create an empty presentation. 2. Add a slide that accepts text entry 3. Enter a sentence of text 4. Double-click on the first word,keep the mouse button pressed after the second click. 5. Drag mouse over the next word 6. Observe that the next word is not highlighted I followed this up by testing other mouseover word functionality: * moving words by holding the mouse button over one word to another * highlighting words by using ctrl+shift+ right arrow * highlighting words in a row/ multiple lines by holding the left mouse button and scrolling over the words I found that all of these followup tests showed successful results. However, I was able to generalize the original bug to be unable to highlight any other words in a two line paragraph. A more generalized set of replication steps: 1. Create an empty presentation. 2. Add a slide that accepts text entry 3. Enter any desirable amount of text, with at least one space delimiting a word. 4. Double-click on the first word,keep the mouse button pressed after the second click. 5. Drag mouse over to any desired word other than the highlighted word 6. Observe that the no words between the highlighted word and the moused over word are highlighted.
