This works for me on Kubuntu 22.04.  But, I am using the release candidate 9.0.90 which is about to become Octave version 9.1.

One possibility would be to build from source and see if the problem has been fixed.  Or wait until version 9.1 and check again.

This may a KDE problem rather that Octave.

If I move the mouse focus to a non-Octave window when I return to Octave F9 deletes the highlighted text rather than executing the code. This applies both if I have some text highlighted before I leave Octave and if I highlight some text after returning to Octave.
