Description schulten 2003-05-17 15:45:32 UTC
Writer scrolls in various situations where the user does not expect it. There are situations where this behavior makes Writer useless for certain solutions. - when the text fields are refreshed, writer scrolls to the beginning. This is a serious problem in scripting, since you have to refresh text fields via API after manipulating them in code. The effect is: user clicks a radio button on page 3 of a template, a macro sets a document variable (a field of type "user field"), the fields are refreshed to let conditions in hidden sections and paragraphs check the new value of the document variable. And swoosh, we are on p. 1. The user did not tell us to go there, he just altered a document variable. This makes it impossible to create documents where certain sections are switched on and off by clicking form controls. - it scrolls to the current cursor position by itself from time to time, although the user has scrolled to a different page (without putting the cursor on that page). This disturbs reading, because you do not constantly move the cursor when you read, you merely scroll the pages - when an image is cut or deleted, writer scrolls to the beginning. Imagine what this means when the image is on p. 127 out of 212, and was supposed to be moved to p. 130. I think a simple rule should be: never scroll unless the user orders it.

Thank you for using and supporting OOo. Does 1.1 Beta 2 resolve this issue?
Comment 2 utomo99 2003-09-24 10:40:02 UTC
Please try using the latest OOo 1.1 Rc5, Your version already old enough, and many bug fixes since your version and 1.1 RC5. If the problem still happend in 1.1 RC5 please report back
Comment 3 guido.pinkernell 2003-11-02 14:43:04 UTC
As to your last comment: The disappearing cursor after having deleted a graphic has been fixed with Issue 12890. As to your second comment: To be able to reproduce the problem we will need a step by step instruction. This might be difficult when it only happens "from time to time", but perhaps you could try;) As to your first: Could you please attach a file with which we could reproduce the problem? Thanks for reporting!
