Description moritzmhq 2002-08-02 13:20:01 UTC
If you have a large index/ToC and update it, the view always jumps to the start
of the index. This is annoying as hell and makes fixing an index much harder
than it ought to be.

FIX: Keep view position after Refreshing an index with RMB->"Verzeichnis
aktualisieren".

bug persists with build 643.

Could we change priority to a higher level??
Comment 2 eric.savary 2003-01-31 16:00:18 UTC
Higher level means -> crash. So it can't have this prio.
ES->OS: I think it's not so easy to "fix"...??? Does it need to go
through the PM Team first?

Ok, will try to stick to the exact terminology in the future..

This bug really is - as Morhippo described it before - "annoying as
hell" and therefore unfortunately disqualifies this Linux-Build of OO
for any sort of larger structured documents IMHO. It even caused me to
switch to the Windows Build when working on an academic document which
was indexing not more than 30 entries in the ToC...


Comment 4 Oliver Specht 2003-02-03 08:42:13 UTC
->Christoph: I don't understand what you mean by "switch to the
Windows build"? The behaviour is system independent. Updating an index
removes the structure and rebuilds it. That's why the cursor (when it
is set inside of the index) is set to the beginning of the index and
the view moves.

according to the announcement on releases
(http://www.openoffice.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=releases&msgNo=7503) this issue
will be re-targeted to OOo Later.

These unexpected jumps are bad usability. Any chance to have a look at this in
3.x timeframe?

Reset assigne to the default "issues@openoffice.apache.org".
