Description bobenose 2010-01-24 18:32:02 UTC
I have a typical multi-monitor setup.  I open a multi-page doc in Writer 3.1.1, 
then select Window->New Window so I can work on multiple locations in the doc.

I wanted to maximize one window, and have the second window sized just to one 
page on another monitor - this "can't work".  When both windows are maximized, I 
can click(focus) from one to the other and everything works as you would expect 
(no cursor/view movement).  If one window is not maximized, then switching focus 
results in the window that LOST focus to jump to some random location.  This is INCREDIBLY annoying, making the two-window view useless - fortunately the 
workaround is "maximize both" (lame) 

Doesn't seem to matter which window is maximized (original or :2), and which is 
just a normal window.

PS: The drop down "Found in version" on this bug-entry form 
( is 
incredibly annoying too, filled with about 200 entries (clean that up, eh)

My suspect is that the jump is not to a random position, but to latest caret

Can you please check that?

Can confirm this. When I have a multi-page document and maximize the window,
then the view will jump to a random position when I create a new window of the
same document.
