Can't make long selection in Writer using PgDn

LO 5.01.2; W10 Pro

I'm having a recurring problem making long selections in Writer. I can use the arrow keys to extend a selection, and can use the scroll bar to do so. However, fixing a selection point (pressing Shift) and then using Page Down seems to negate the initial selection entirely - when I choose an end point (click a spot on the screen), I generally end up with just one paragraph selected.

This is annoying, because Page Down is the easiest way to select. Arrow keys are slow (scrolling each line) and scroll bars are imprecise (can't see just where you are). Am I missing something?
