Summary0005730: Cursor does not behave correctly in text frame
DescriptionIn the document of #5729 open the second page and double-click on the same text-box in the lower-right corner. Place the mouse in front of "Mi., 23.5..." hold down the mouse-button and move right, beyond the word "Drama".

Although the mouse does not touch the second column, the whole text in it is selected and the cursor jumps to its end.

A second, minor cursor bug which might not be worth its own report is:
Place the cursor at the end of the text in the first column, i.e. in the middle of the word "Auditorium". Now press cursor-down and watch the cursor jumping two lines instead of one. Press up again and it will go up only one line, i.e. as expected.

Actually cursor does not behave correctly on canvas in almost every case that needs a little more precision. Trying to resize object by clicking directly on control (red corner box) points of some frame will almost certainly lead to moving object instead of resizing. The only way to resize is to place cursor almost outside of box and frame itself and then click+drag. I used to use to this kind of behavior, but it's not intuitive.

From 0006520:
When the cursor is placed on the end of a line, do not work: 1) home key, end key; 2) applying paragraph style; 3) clicking next paragraph.
When the cursor is placed on the end of a line to sign a text, do not work: 4) copy and cut commands.
