Description digulla 2009-05-08 16:03:39 UTC
To select a relation in the relation designer, you must click on a single pixel
perfect which is almost impossible. Please make the click zone much larger;
ideally select the closest element, no matter where the user clicks.

for the record: The relation design can be operated by keyboard, just like *any*
part of OOo. Try the TAB key ...

I can't reproduce this. I can select a relation also if I click beside a
"relation line". I have used a Linux machine may be it depends on the platform.

Can someone else reproduce this?

Bye Marc
