Description Alex H 2013-03-08 10:36:31 UTC
Using 3.4.1
Rev 1372282
AOO341m1 (Build: 9593)
on Windows 8 AiO HP desktop machine.
In Calc, multiple sheet selection using Ctrl+Click on sheet tab is no longer possible in this version of openoffice (ApacheOffice 3).

Functionality of Spreadsheet module is SEVERELY COMPROMIZED!

To me, this non-multiple-sheet selection is a new problem. It has never ever happened with any of the previous OpenOffice versions since 1.0 !!!

Please fix.
Please give me personal feedback.
Can you confirm this problem/bug for this ApacheOpenOffice version?

Best thanks

In what OS did you try?
On Linux it is working (at least on my distribution, with KDE4)

Works for me with Apache OpenOffice 3.4.1 on Windows XP SP3 (32 bits).
Works for me with Apache OpenOffice 3.4.1 on Windows 8 (64 bits).

On my Windows 8 the visual display of a selected tab is barely distinguishable from a non-selected tab. But it works.

Perhaps an incorrect installation of your Apache OpenOffice.
When launching installation, right-click and choose run as Administrator, even if you are the administrator.
