Description janssege 2009-10-27 11:25:37 UTC
I have created a form in Base, which holds a Table field. Inside this table
field, I have a column setup which is of type Formatted Field.
This formatted field has inconsistent highlighting behaviour, compared to an
ordinary text field in the same table field, or any field type outside the table
All fields by default automatically highlight the contents of the field when it
gets the focus. The formatted field inside a table field by contrast will use
that last highlighted state for that column. So if a cell in the formatted field
column was last fully highlighted, the next cell to get the focus in this column
will be fully highlighted. If the cursor was in position 3, it will be in
position 3 again, if two digits were highlighted, 2 digits will be highlighted

Apart from being inconsistent, this is also really counterproductive when lots
of repetitive table actions are required.

Note that I have been able to reproduce this issue on
* CentOS 5.3 (OOo 2.3 with patches)
* Mandriva 2009.1 (OOo 3.0.1)
* Fedora 12beta (OOo 3.1.1)
I have no idea if it happens on other OS's as well.

I have attached a very simple base document that demonstrates the problem. The
full testcase is described in the document itself.
Just open the SampleForm form.
