Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Shift/Down Arrow in columns jumps upward.

After assigning a value in a column in the Activity table (pick-list driven, so the dictionary window opens with a selection being made by pressing enter or the green 'Selection' button thus closing the window), if the user holds down the <shift> key and presses the down arrow to select additional Activities to fill down the values, the cursor jumps upward and highlights all records above to the top of a group-by band. This was not the behavior in P6 PPM version 8.2, nor 8.4. It is now in P6 PPM 15.1.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
The user will be able to make multiple selections without the jumping behavior described.

3: Select the <shift> key and the down arrow to select additional Activities to fill down the values.
4: Activities residing above and below the highlighted item are selected.

* Note: if you move to another cell and then back to the value and follow the steps only Activities below the highlighted are selected.
