Have now tested both Windows 10 and Ubuntu 20.04 with LO v7.1.2.2. The problem (bug) occurs in both systems when the column is set to multiline. It will also occur on a single cell when selected.

@Ratslinger Off Topic - do you use Jasper with Postgres ?

Don't have much use for any printing. Have set up a variety for testing in the past including Jasper. My recollection was it did not matter the DB used. The key was it needed a JDBC connection for the DB. Seems other report generators examined were also Java dependent.
