LO Calc LinuxMint 19.0 - right click on selected cell results in CUT about 10% of time. Then I need to do undo. When it works correctly the context menu pops up with CUT highlighted. So I suspect when it fails the selected CUT is getting selected. Don't find such a problem reported so I expect I am doing something wrong. Have tried two mice and both fail the same and the problem is only in calc. Have tried to reproduce in writer with no failures. If I go very slow and select a cell, wait a moment, then drag to select a number of cells, wait a moment then right click on menu it fails much less often, but does still fail occasionally.
I have had some success when right clicking do not release button and move cursor to item in menu, then release and left click the item. I didn't have this problem with 5.2 . Am considering reinstalling old release to see if problem occurs. But what would that buy me? Any ideas, setting I maybe over looking?

could you test in failsafe mode? (see the Help menu)
