Description katherinekatz 2006-11-08 23:53:02 UTC
In fiddling with the new MSO recently, I discovered that in selecting many 
cells it would speed up and then slow down to a stop when it came to the 
nearest blank cell, meaning you didn't overshoot the end of the of the table 
drastically. A great improvement! Well worth immitating.

I can't confirm that Excel actually slows down the selection speed when it's
approaching a blank cell.  But Excel adjusts the scroll speed when selecting a
range that extends outside the current visible area, with the scroll speed
depending upon how far the mouse pointer is from the edge of the worksheet
window.  I will just assume that's what you are requesting to be implemented in
Calc.  If not, let us know.
