Description richlv 2010-09-01 12:13:28 UTC
multiple slide selection in the sidebar is incorrect.

it seems to have problems if slides that are selected next are located before 
slides selected before. testcases :

1. select a slide in a document, try to ctrl-select additional slide above it. 
first slide is delected;
2. select a slide in a document, try to shift-select two slides above it. 
nothing happens on the first click, but on the second click first slide is 
deselected and single new slide is selected.
3. also one problem with downwards selection. select a slide, ctrl-select a 
slide few slides below it, then try to shift-select additional range below. 
original slide and omitted slides also get selected (looks like it does not 
properly mark ctrl-selected slide as last used one). in this case expected 
outcome would be only slides since ctrl-selected one till clicked one being 
4. select a slide, ctrl-select a slide few slides below it, try to ctrl-shift 
select additional range even more below. nothing happens. in this case expected 
outcome would be original slide still selected in addition to slides since ctrl-
selected one till clicked one being selected as well.

trying these operations with more advanced selections results in all kinds of 
unexpected results :)
also the "nothing happens upon the first click" problem seems to be quite 

i would like to use a chance to congratulate impress team on actually making 
slide operations usable - even with these selection problems it is MUCH better 
now ;)
dragging a single slide does not take a minute anymore, downward selection 
actually works and does not select random slides (very interesting effect when 
you select lots of slides in a large document to delete them...)
so thank you.

I am running 64-bit Windows 7.  At first, I tried to replicate the bug on the
version of OpenOffice I normally use, OOO320m18.  I was unable to replicate any
of your results other than test cases 3 and 4.

Case 1: Two slides selected. No Problem.
Case 2: Original slide, shift-clicked slide, and in-between slides all selected.
 No Problem.
Case 3: All slides between first selected slide (on top) and last selected slide
(on bottom) selected.  Replicated just as described.
Case 4: Unable to select anything with ctrl-shift clicking.

I did not have any problems with nothing happening on a first click.

Then, I downloaded DEV300m87 and replicated the test cases on it, and
experienced the problems that were described and replicated all test test cases.
 I also experienced problems with nothing happening on a first click, just as
described in the report.

The program seems to handle simple ctrl and shift click selection when the
second slide is after the first slide.  Test cases 1 and 2 do not produce
problems if the second slide is below the first instead of above.

Reproducible. Reassigned. Seems to be a follow up of renaissance1.

Fixed points 1 and 2 (by not updating the slide sorter selection to the core selection when the current slide is set).
Points 3 and 4 describe more an enhancement for which I submitted issue 117157.
