Description oharar 2009-04-20 12:04:37 UTC
When I am viewing slides in the slide sorter, I will scroll down to look at
later or earlier slides.  After (at most) a second, the slide sorter will
scroll/flip back to the original slide that I was viewing in "Normal".

This happens with 25 or more slides - I haven't checked with <25 slides.

I tried replicating this bug in Windows Vista on a PC. At first, the bug did 
not seem to reproducible. I tried replicating the bug using 15, 20, 24, 25, 30, 
35, 40, 45, and 50 slides; yet, the bug could not be reproduced.

However, I was able to reproduce the bug by doing the following using 15, 20, 
24, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, and 50 slides:

Minimizing and Maximizing:
1. Minimize oOo Impress
2. Maximize oOo Impress

Switching applications:
1. Switch from oOo Impress to another application (any application) like 
Microsoft PowerPoint or Internet Explorer
2. Switch back to oOo Impress

In both these cases, the slide sorter scrolls back to the very top.

This bug may not seem significant, but it would waste users' precious time if 
it wasn't fixed. In the world of business, time is important and should not be 
wasted. All the time used to repeatedly scroll back to the desired place in the 
slide sorter could of been used to do other important tasks. Aside from that, 
impatient users would find it very annoying to have to scroll back to the 
desired position in the slide sorter over and over again.

I forgot to mention this before, but I was using version oOo-dev 3.2.0 to 
replicate the bug.

Ok, now I have it, a little bit in another way but... yes.
I have an impress fiel with about 64 slides opened in an Office running on a
virtual machine, visible with rdesktop. Slide one is seleced in Slide sorter.
Now I scroll down to the last slide using the scrollbar. Then I switch to
another desktop and back to the first one with the running Office. After half a
second the view sets back to the top.
