Description Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2011-08-06 01:17:51 UTC
Created attachment 282255 [details]

Since installing app-office/libreoffice- I have observed the following behaviour in Impress: When I enter or paste RTL text into a text box, it prevents activating the item with mouse click for further editing.
It remains still accessible with keyboard commands or the outline view.

The attached file demonstrates the issue. The text box cannot be edited by clicking on it with the mouse. libreoffice-3.3 and openoffice do not expose this problem.

I cannot see any problem with the file,
I am using the kde interface,
what are you using?

I built libreoffice with the following flags:

I tried libreoffice-bin and it is not affected.
