Selecting the file to the bottom, moving the selection to top and dragging it down again crashes the app

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create Open any file.
  2. Add some text to the file.

  1. Go to Reading View.
  2. Select the text from the start and select till the bottom.

  1. Then while holding your selection try to go up again.

  1. Then when you try to pull your selection down again and to interact with the app it crashes.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


Expected result

I expect that I will have my text selected again and that I can go with my selection down again.

Actual result

The selection stops at the heading and hangs there. Trying to interact with the app then will crash it.

Additional information

I found a similar issue already, that also has to do with crashing while selecting. But it was fixed, that’s why I opened this issue.

The issue you link to is unrelated I think.

thanks, interesting.

I don’t see how it is related to the other thread you linked
