Description Antonio Bulgheroni 2011-10-28 18:57:43 UTC
According to the Guide Chapter "Working with Groups" one should be able to group together two or more objects just by selecting the first object and then shift-clicking on the others. 

This is not the case for the word processor. When shift-clicking on the second object, the selection goes to none. 

This is how to reproduce:

1. Open OO Writer
2. Create two objects, for example importing two pictures from file
3. Select the first with a mouse click
4. Select the second keeping the shift key pressed.

Bug 28125 is about Drawing, this is for writer where I don't even have the possibility the shift select the second element. This is not only concerning images, it is releated to every objects.
