At some time in the last year, as I have updated from OpenOffice to
LibreOffice on OpenSuSE 11.4, I have lost the ability to select multiple
pages of text by simply left mouse dragging down in the document. If I
cross a page border now, the light blue selection highlight for the text in
the page disappears and a dotted line of the same blue color appears around
the page. As the document scrolls onwards, the text in the next page gets
selected until its page boundary is reached, when the same thing happens.
Is this a setting issue? A compatibility issue with documents created in
OO. sometimes as much as 3 years ago? Any suggestions welcomed. I do a lot
of cutting and pasting between documents, and this is certainly slowing me
The problem might be the LO version that OpenSuSE uses. It may not
identical to the version that is available from www.libreoffice.org.
Using the latter version, I was able to select 16 consecutive pages
dragging down these pages.
You might want to report this problem to OpenSuSE as it may be a
bug in the version they provide in their distribution.
