Description doctroid 2008-11-24 20:17:39 UTC
The buggy behavior can be illustrated with a drawing file containing the
following, in order from back to front:

- A large rectangle (referred to below as "Rectangle 0")
  Entirely within Rectangle 0:
  - A large text object (large font size) ("Text 0")
    Entirely within the boundary of Text 0:
    - A small text object ("Text 1")
    - A small circle object ("Circle 1")
  - A small text object ("Text 2")
  - A small circle object ("Circle 2")

If nothing is selected and one clicks within the boundary of Text 2, then Text 2
is selected; likewise, clicking within Circle 2 selects Circle 2, and selecting
within Circle 1 selects Circle 1.

However, clicking within Text 1 selects Rectangle 0!

Same behavior in OOo 2.4 under Ubuntu.
Comment 3 Regina Henschel 2008-11-24 23:25:16 UTC
I can see the error only, if option "PickThrough" is selected. Even if you zoom
so much, that you surely hit the text, it goes through and selects the rectangle.

I use OOo3 on WinXP.

Reproducible. Reassigned.

Set keyword.
Comment 6 gibi 2010-04-02 17:07:52 UTC
I can reproduce in 3.1.1 Windows.
Now trying with 3.2.0 Linux X64 EN-US: 
clicking within Text 1 now selects [Text 1] and not Rectangle 0.
So seems to be corrected?

Reset assigne to the default "".
