Marching ants around a selection are a curse directly from Microsoft!
A very good reason to continue using OpenOffice !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P. S.  I hate marching ants!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Somebody who knows Excel's marching ants without hating them will learn to
hate them in LibreOffice because the functionality is completely broken (no
reference to the system clipboard).
The Enter key behaviour in the context of this anti-feature is completely
broken. MS adopted paste on Enter from Lotus 1-2-3 as an option for those
who switched from 1-2-3 to Excel in the early 90ies. In Calc it makes no
sense, particularly when you navigate with the Enter key and your table is
pasted over.
