Open a new doc and insert a rectangle. Open the position and size dialog and go
to rotation tabpage. With page up it is possible to set the value to 5000  for
X, Y and rotation. this happens also for the corner radius.

oooforum: This Bug has a rather unclear description and a lousy background research -  because of this it is a bad idea to mark a report with a meaningful description as a DUP of this one. 

Additionally, your DUP"  rating is wrong. I had this Bug in my DUP check and I decided that it does not describe my observations for very good reasons. Reporter complains that the uppage key inserts "5000°", what of course is rather useless. 

BUT: thatseems to be the intended behavior, the uppage and downpage keys will insert the maximum allowed or minimum allowed value. It can be discussed whether that is an appropriate use of these keys, but I am happy with the current behavior in many applications; so I do think that this is a bug.

Here an example where current behavior (what is not limited to Draw or to position values and similar): In WRITER menu 'View -> Zoom -> Variable' uppage or downpage key can be used to select maximum or minimum zoom easily

So, as result of careful research, I modify Summary and bug status here.

Not an Issue until someone contributes a good idea how to improve function for these keys
