Description Joe Smith 2013-02-04 00:31:11 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1) File > New > Presentaion ... Create (all defaults)
2) Insert two more empty slides

3) Click on slide 1 in the page panel, then click back in the slide panel.

4) Press Page Down -- slide 2 is selected
5) Press Page Down -- slide 3 is selected

6) Press Page Up -- slides 2+3 are selected
7) Press Page Up -- slides 1+2+3 are selected

The Page Up/Down keys should only change the active slide; they should never lead to selection of more than one slide.

The click sequence in step three seems to be important for seeing the problem.

I am not able to reproduce the above mentioned defect on my PC.. win 7 OS ..
Comment 2 Joe Smith 2013-02-08 13:34:37 UTC
The click sequence given above is critical:

Click in the page panel

Click in the editing panel

Press Page Up.

The problem is consistent for me when I follow these steps, but not otherwise.

I see the same thing in the current nightly build.

With AOO 3.4.1 on Windows XP:

Slide 1 is kept always highlighted but only the new active slide is actually selected (press Del deletes only selected slide, and not slide 1).

The bug is more about slide 1 that keeps being highlighted (but not with exactly the same highlighting.
Comment 4 Hagar Delest 2013-02-08 15:08:58 UTC
Correction: in fact, slide 1 is kept highlighted because the mouse is still over slide 1!
Comment 5 Anders Kvibäck 2013-02-10 16:01:54 UTC
Yes, the defect is there! I've tested it with AOO 3.4.1 on Windows Vista, HP.

Thanks for reporting!

It seems not to affect everyone but I don't wee a pattern to it. There are some other comments here (some confirming, some not):

While I agree the problem is lower-priority, it could conceivably lead to data loss as the user could change or delete many slides while thinking only one is selected.
