Just updated to newest LibreOffice 7.0.4.2 for Mac from 6.something.

I often need to copy rows and columns in tables in Writer. I mouse over the beginning of rows (or top of columns) and an arrow appears wherewith I can select one or multiple rows (or columns).

It used to be that this arrow appeared exactly at the intuitive point. I think this started when I upgraded beyond 7.x :it now seems that the arrow has shifted down and to the right. Very annoying when you click at a certain point and the row above it is selected.

Anybody know if I have something setup wrong or is this a bug?

LO 7.0.4.2 under Fedora Linux 33, KDE Plasma desktop: the arrow appears where it is expected, no offset down or right. Did you also upgrade MacOS?

I'd agree that it is not working perfectly on macOS (using macOS 11.0.1 and LO 7.0.4.2). Clicking arrow while it points up to 10-15% (by rule-of-thumb estimate) of row height (percentage seems to be dependent on zoom factor) below a certain row (border), the row above gets selected.
