Bug Description

1. Open the Quick Start Guide that comes with calibre in E-book viewer.
2. Press Ctrl-t to open the table of contents and click on "Where to get help", the book view changes to display the start of the respective chapter.
3. Make a selection of the first paragraph by clicking near its end ("on a per e-book basis") and drag-and-dropping up to its start ("The first place to look for help").
4. Shift-click or right-click inside the selection. Calibre changes the position of the lower selection boundary, while it should change that of the upper one.

Calibre version: 5.18,
OS: Windows 10 Home 1803.

This is not worth the effort for me personally. If some one else wants to implement it, I will be happy to supply any needed guidance. If so, re-open the ticket and we can discuss it.
