Description norbert2 2006-05-26 20:55:17 UTC

please open the attached document.

normally it is possible to click left in front of a line (outside of the content
area) to set the cursor to the beginning of the line.

this works fine for the first line of the document.

But in line 2 and 3 that begin with a picture / formula (anchored as character)
this does not work. In this case the cursor is set right after the object.

(please correct the summary "bevore"->"left in front of".)
Comment 3 michael.ruess 2006-05-29 14:01:27 UTC
MRU->FME: it is only possible to get left of the objects by moving with cursor keys.
Comment 4 norbert2 2006-05-29 17:46:49 UTC
additional info:

this problems only exists for left aligned lines and the left side.
(clicking right on right aligned lines places the cursor as ecpected.)

FME: Considering the resources and the effort, I have to set the target to "OOo
Comment 6 norbert2 2007-02-07 16:51:15 UTC
Please open the attached document "cursor2".

Try to select the whole document using the mouse. It is impossible to include
the picture to the selection!
