Here, selection across frames works fine. Deselection is bugged though - it actually deselects, but the frame that's not the "primary" selection is not redrawn properly.

I can confirm that property changes only take effect on text in the "primary" selection.

There also seems to be a more general disconnect between the text selection and the object selection. It seems to me that if there is a text selection across one or more frames, those frames should also be added to the selected objects. Without that, application of frame properties such as background colour is confusing.
