Description tburcham 2005-03-25 19:36:25 UTC
Scrolling in "Print Layout" view should stop and align to each
page it passes. This gives a much neater feel to scrolling than
just scrolling a preset fraction of a window's worth of text
each time and almost never aligning to a page.

MSWord97 does this, and it's definitely a nice feature. I tested
MSWord with a few page and window heights and it does this con-
sistently, so it certainly shouldn't go against any official or
unofficial standards.
Comment 1 tburcham 2005-03-25 19:46:58 UTC
After further testing, I see MSWord97 only does this if the scrolling starts
out aligned to a page. Scrolling up has less tendency to align to pages.
It would be nice if Writer always tried to snap to to page boundaries even
when scrolling starts out unaligned. This would be an improvement on the
scrolling behaviour in Writer (and MSWord97).

This "problem" isn't solved in my OO 3 beta Version (Mac OSX). It's very unpleasan to scroll down and 
neven know, where I was with my reading.

MsWord does it better.

It's really a requirement.
