Description minhsien0330 2008-12-20 06:36:13 UTC
In 2.0.X, I can just press "Ctrl" to move the cursor site to the
screen center vertically in writer.
I love this very much, I think this is a pretty good function that MS office
doesn't have, but it was canceled (2.4.X to 3.0.0) .

Would recover this function again, please?
Maybe it could be a customizable option in "Tool > Options > >
Accessibility" (just like attachment "ctrl.png"). 
Thank you very much~

I don't know about such a feature we had with only pressing Ctrl.
Which version of OOo did you use at the time? A special distro build?

Hi, es~
Thanks for your reply.

It should not come form special distro build. At least, I use this function both
on Linux or Windows.
I tried to find the old version to show you this function, but I
cannot find any tarball earlier than 2.4.X now.
Only version 2.0.1 for windows can I found on "" [1]. I tried it and I
am sure version 2.0.1 has this function exactly.
I found someone reported this feature as "a problem" on windows XP in issue
58532 [2].
However, I still think this is a pretty good feature, I can move the cursor to
best position on screen and find the cursor site quickly through it.
I wish this could be a customizable option, allowing users to enable it.

Thank you~

I had a look into OOo 2.0.0, 2.0.1 and 2.0.2 and none of these builds had the
mentioned accessibility option. Maybe this option was part of a special
distribution's build.
Reassigning this to requirement as an "request for enhancement".

Reassigned to requirements.

Hi, mru~
I tried again, I found only the "Right Control" had this function in  Version
2.0.1 for windows (downloaded from "").
Thanks. :)
