(urgent) shift+down always selects TWO cells in a table

Good morning
Using LibreOffice 6.0.5.2 (64-bit) on Windows 10

I just made a mistake somewhere: I hit some key combination that rotated
the screen by 90 degrees.
Although I was able to fix that somehow, since then LibreOffice insists
on selecting always TWO cells simultaneously
in a 2-column table to be translated. Using for example "Shift+Down".
Even in a newly created document.
I tried rebooting, but that does not change anything.
This is very disruptive to my work. Searching the help documentation I
could not yet find any hints.
Since I am somewhat pressed for time with this work, I would very much
appreciate any hints as to how to fix this.

LibreOffice did not behave like this before the screen rotation. I
presume, something must have happened there.

Thank you.
Thomas

Re: (urgent) shift+down always selects TWO cells in a table

Hi,

I would try to reset user profile
<https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Faq/General/110#Resolving_corruption>
and see if that fix it. Just backup everything important you might have
in that folder (autocorrection, custom dictionaries and such).

If resetting user profile does the trick, try to google how to rotate
screen again - and rotate it back :) - and see if same thing happens
again. If it does, it should be reported to LO's issue tracker
<https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=73805>.

Kruno

That's a feature of Windows (or at least the display driver).
Ctrl+Alt+Left/Right/Up/Down rotates the display. Generally, with the
monitor oriented landscape, Ctrl+Alt+Up returns to the correct rotation.
It shouldn't affect the behaviour of LibreOffice though, unless you
changed something in LibreOffice while trying to work out how to get the
rotation back to normal.

As far as I'm aware, that's the way it usually works. Shift+Down selects
the current cell and the one below it. You can immediately press
Shift+Up to remove selection of the lower cell, leaving only the cell
the cursor was originally in selected.
