Description vgendler 2005-10-28 06:54:35 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open New Text Document
2. Insert a default table at the top
3. Insert couple of empty lines below
4. Insert another default table below.
5. Place cursor at various positions and strike Ctrl+A
6. Watch as depending on the cursor position various tables get selected
    instead of selecting the whole content. Sometimes none is selected
7. After one table gets selected pressing Delete key does not delete it.

If we insert two tables not from the top of the document then behavior is correct.
I will attach two text documents in one ZIP to demonstrate this.

Closing dup.

It is obvious now that the whole "table" part works ... how to say ... not as
expected. If you divide it into many small parts with defects then each of them
will be "small defect". It's a pity.

Somehow it works well in MS Word, Wordperfect - miracle!
