Description jmills 2002-08-22 07:49:50 UTC
the scroll lock key does not appear to work as expected.  ie
if you highlight cell a10 (with a1 in to top left of the screen), and hit cursor down,
without scroll lock you expect to move to a11;
with scroll lock on you expect to stay on a10, and the whole worksheet scroll up so that a2 is at the topleft o the screen.

in OOo1.0.1 the highlighted cell moves to a11....

Hi Jonathan,

it's not a bug but a feature request. I've set the flags.


Hi Falko,

Make use of scroll lock key.
If scroll lock is activated scroll the whole table when using up/down
cursors (instead of just moving a cell up or down)

Scroll lock is still not functional in OOO 2.0.3.
IMHO, it should not be hard to fix.

while filling out big forms, It would be really convenient to see, where you're
scrolling to.
Another solution to this problem would be not to start scrolling when in the
last column, but when 10 % of the shown columns are left...

Please give this feature another consideration for implementation ;-)

dothebaart - that is worth filing as a separate feature request, as it would be
good to have both.  I don't know about 10% though... maybe it would be better to
specify a number of cells.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".

I too miss the scroll lock function - meaning the keyboard scroll lock key !
- not the windows freeze - that works fine but the other does not work.
