i described the issue in a bug report but it was rejected:
on debian gnu/linux, up to date libre office (Version: 126.96.36.199.0+, from buster backports)
when using track changes, with ‘show’ option unchecked, so that changes are not visible, sometimes when i type a character, the cursor is forced to the left of what i type, and stays there. this has the effect freezing the cursor in place, because it is normally moved to the right by what you type.
its only occasional, and i don’t know if there is any specific (formatting, etc) situation in which it occurs. i’m not working with tables or anything fancy, just plain text processing in main body of the page. document is long thought (20 000 + words).
sorry if already reported, its tricky to search for what someone else might call this phenomenon.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.open large file
2. enable track changes, uncheck ‘show’
3. move around editing/adding text
cursor stays in one place, newly typed text is inserted after cursor.
cursor shd follow not precede newly inserted text.
perhaps someone here might have an inkling as to what might be going on, or similar experiences?
any pointers appreciated.
