          Severity: normal

           Summary: digikam: wrong selection with shift key
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: Linux
          Reporter: dennisgrunert at hotmail.de
          Hardware: openSUSE RPMs
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
         Component: Usability
           Product: digikam

openSUSE 12.2
digikam 2.6.0-3.1.2-x86_64 from openSUSE 12.2 OSS repo

When selecting consecutive images with the shift key, the wrong selection is
done (see steps to reproduce for details)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open digikam
2. select an album
3. view the images in the mode "view image", so that below is the image and on
the top are the thumbnails of the images in the album in a row.
4. select the n-th image with a left mouse click
5. Press m times the spacebar to view the n+m-th images.
6. Now press the shift key and on the same time click the x-th image (with x >
m+n) to select consecutive images
Actual Results:  
The images n to x are now selected.

Expected Results:  
But the user expects the images n+m (his last viewed one) to x selected.

When you press the spacebar to view the next images, the blue frame which marks
the currently selected images is always at the images which the user views
(that's good behaviour) but when you select images with shift+mouseclick the
beginning of the selection always starts where your last mouseclick was (even
if it was 100 images before) and not where the blue frame is (what the user
expects), so that's bad behaviour.
