Description ennio_sr 2005-04-08 11:01:13 UTC
    Would it be possible to change present configuration of cursor movement on a 
Calc spreadsheet so that when you move it to a specific location, either using 
Navigator or with uno.commands in a macro, the destination cell will be shown as 
the upper left corner of the visible Calc window instead of the middle row?

    Suppose you have a Menu at rows A201 to A226 and you want to see it: you set 
up a macro with an instruction telling the cursor to go to cell A201 as you 
expect that this will be in the upper left corner of the window and you'll be 
able to see all of your Menu rows on the screen. You discover, instead, that the 
cursor does go to row A201 but, as this is configured to be shown as the middle 
row of the Calc window, you get a screen showing rows from 191 to 211.

    Of course, you can correct the situation just telling the cursor to go to 
cell A211; however, if in the meantime you've changed your 'visible' window 
size, your Menu is messed up again as your 'middle row' reference is now 
calculated as regards the new window size.

Something for requirements

I can't understand that: what does it mean? Am I required to do anything?

Hi Frank,

thanks for the clarification: I'd already sent my message when I realized what 
'requirements' meant ;(

Sorry, I would be too happy to help with a patch were I able to do so ...
