           Summary: undefined: Shift-click problem
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
 Status Whiteboard: BSA
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Libreoffice
        AssignedTo: libreoffice-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org

LibreOffice 3.3.3 
OOO330m19 (Build:301)

Problem description: The shift click method of selecting text allows one to
increase the text selection, but not to decrease it.  
This is not standard behavior, and will be annoying to MS Word users, in fact
to virtually all computer users.  This is a writer problem, and seems not to
exist anywhere else in the program. Please, this is a bug and not a feature!

Steps to reproduce:
1.Click in text.
2. Shift-click deeper into text for selection: Text is selected.
3. Shift-click even deeper: Text selection is increased.
3. Then, Shift-click closer to beginning of selection.

Current behavior:  Nothing! As if the expected behavior is disabled.

Expected behavior: Decrease in selection, ending with latest shift-click
