Good morning
Using LibreOffice 6.0.5.2 (64-bit) on Windows 10

I just made a mistake somewhere: I hit some key combination that rotated the screen by 90 degrees.

That's a feature of Windows (or at least the display driver). Ctrl+Alt+Left/Right/Up/Down rotates the display. Generally, with the monitor oriented landscape, Ctrl+Alt+Up returns to the correct rotation. It shouldn't affect the behaviour of LibreOffice though, unless you changed something in LibreOffice while trying to work out how to get the rotation back to normal.

Although I was able to fix that somehow, since then LibreOffice insists on selecting always TWO cells simultaneously
in a 2-column table to be translated. Using for example "Shift+Down".
Even in a newly created document.

As far as I'm aware, that's the way it usually works. Shift+Down selects the current cell and the one below it. You can immediately press Shift+Up to remove selection of the lower cell, leaving only the cell the cursor was originally in selected.

I tried rebooting, but that does not change anything.
This is very disruptive to my work. Searching the help documentation I could not yet find any hints.
Since I am somewhat pressed for time with this work, I would very much appreciate any hints as to how to fix this.

LibreOffice did not behave like this before the screen rotation. I presume, something must have happened there.
