Description bobharvey 2008-11-11 05:04:20 UTC
I handle a lot of large documents, sometimes with lots of graphics in. I attach an example full of screen grabs. SInce the introduction of the multiple page view I cannot easily navigate while changing zoom. In the example given, * view at 25%. * Put the cursor in page 7 (either select the graphics or the blank line of text below). * Change zoom to 'page width'. * Page 3 will be displayed. * Use rude words. I have noticed this on every document I edit - but most of those have headings etc. that I can navigate around with the navigator. These collections of screen dumps don't and that makes it more annoying.

Created attachment 57858 [details] A large file, the one referred to in the text. There is nothing magic about this one, it happens with all the files I have ever edited

Further information It appears that, when changing zoom, the page displayed is the one currently highlit in the navigator, even if the navigator is not displayed, or indeed has never been displayed for that document. Why when I load the file mentioned above (which contains no headings or similar devices) the navigator chooses to become obsessed with page 3 I do not know. Even now I know the navigator is involved I still think there is something odd about the ergonomics - the page being worked on should be the one displayed after changing zoom.

OK, I was wrong about that. I just had a frustrating time with a 70-page document that kept jumping to the end when I switched to 25%, even though a heading on page 21 was selected in the Navigator. I don't really know what it thinks it is doing.

MRU->OS: when I zoom out to have a multiple page view displayed and then zoom back, I will always be transferred to the first page of my document.

I think this Issue is solved (tested in OOO330m17). Can somebody else verify?
Comment 10 vitriol 2010-12-07 11:45:25 UTC
@mastadizzy For me, isn't fixed in 3.3 RC7 (OOO330m17).

this issue has been reported on Windows as well (see duplicate issues) Windows should be added to Linux in the OS field

->fl: In general it could be taken care to make the selection visible each time the zoom type or zoom factor changes. I'm not sure if this is always desired. What is the UX point of view?
