Description oflebbe 2010-08-04 15:09:56 UTC

the uploaded document shows a very interesting feature: If one tries to place
the cursor on the first word of the second page, the cursor jumps into the
headline instead. It is almost impossible to edit the text.

On cannot move the cursor by pressing "down" down to the second page.

Removing the comment or the first page does fix it.

The example is heavily downstripped from a real world document.

Can see the problem in OOo 3.2.1 and 3.3-dev. But it is fixed in DEV300m85 - try
it out!
Comment 3 michael.ruess 2010-08-04 16:32:58 UTC
Closed, fixed for OOo 3.4.
Comment 4 oflebbe 2010-08-04 16:54:25 UTC
Sorry to say, I tried DEV300m86 on windows right now and the problem still persists.

@oflebbe: this is only reproducible for me when the view layout is at 2 pages
side by side with the comment gutter on the right side (so not in "Book mode").
Is this correct?

@MRU/MOD: nonetheless I cannot reproduce it recreating the document from
scratch. I's a rather complicated document (Word import) which shows a lot of
page styles with headers containing sections which are for some of them protected.

I guess we have an unfortunate feature combination of protected sections in
header + Comment + view layout.

Any idea?

I think we have a similar issue laying around somewhere else, but could not
reproduce it there as well from scratch. I'll try to look into it...

@MOD: thanx for having a look at it!

Hi, sorry to respond late...

I have uploaded a better example for the problem. It shows the problem in normal
editing mode too. Open test4.ode and try to click on the Word "Abt.". The mouse
pointer warps to a different location.

And yes, I was not able to reconstruct the problem from scratch, too. The
document is an import from word and heavily edited with different word processors.
