           Summary: OpenOffice (oocalc) should distinguish between Shift
                    pressed and Shiftlock
           Product: openSUSE 10.3
           Version: Beta 2
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: OpenOffice.org

With some keyboard layouts (e.g. french and belgium, see
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caps_lock --> Shift lock and
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout#AZERTY 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). 

Unfortunately OpenOffice.Org (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"
* oocalc
* press capslock/shiftlock
* mark different cells with left mouse button

P.S.: This bugreport is the conclusion of Bug #290355.
