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 none

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.

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.
Comment 3 bobharvey 2008-11-17 09:13:02 UTC
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.

How is this coming along?

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
Comment 12 Oliver Specht 2010-12-28 12:46:20 UTC
->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?
