Summary: OpenOffice (oocalc) should distinguish between Shift
pressed and Shiftlock
Product: openSUSE 10.3

Found By: ---
With some keyboard layouts (e.g. french and belgium, see
--> Shift lock and
for french/belgium keyboard
layout), it makes sense to use Capslock as Shiftlock to type numbers in a
spreadsheet program, especially if you don't have a number key block (e.g. if
you use a laptop).
(oocalc) and probably also any other
application/toolkit do not distinguish between Shiftlock and Shift. Therefore
when you select a cell (left mouse button) in the spreadsheet and then a second
one (also left mouse button) with Shiftlock enabled you also mark the cells
between - as if you would have Shift pressed. A behaviour you don't want, don't
expect and also don't get on Windows.
How to reproduce:
* setxkbmap -layout us -option "caps:shiftlock"
* press capslock/shiftlock
* mark different cells with left mouse button
