Description daedaluseh 2005-06-01 20:00:01 UTC
In m104 snapshot multiple selection area makes it difficult to select the objects. 
When choosing multiple objects for grouping, only the objects should be
displayed as selected and not the area that they cover, as there might be
another object in that area that the user might want to select.

This bug should be fixed to give users the same usability experience as in
PowerPoint, where each object in a set of selected objects appears as selected
by itself. OpenOffice displays only one bounding rectangle around a set of
selected objects. However on complex slides this makes it impossible to
see what is actually selected. 

The approach of PowerPoint seems clearly superior here, because it makes clear
what is selected, no matter how complex a slide is.

The same should happen if an extension selects several objects at once
using cs)
