Description lars 2002-08-31 20:31:26 UTC
when one wants to select data, let's say B1:B7857, this will be helpfull.

high speed not in the beginning, but gradually.

to a maximum, not 1000 rows/sec., but say 50 rows/sec.

then, the user can double this speed by pressing the right mouse button (and 
again and again if he needs it)

Accelerate scroll speed when scrolling long "distances" 
Example: If a user expands content to a column by using the mouse the
scroll speed should gradually speed up the further the user scrolls

hmm, if the screen border is near, the distance for acceleration is quite low 
and the final speed is not high enough. Moving "beyond" the screen border had 
no effect as of OOo 3.0 Beta m2. The final speed I achieved is a good high 
speed. Yet for even further distances, a fine-tune info may pop up telling 
something like "click right once/twice to double/half or so speed". Thus 
leaving open.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".

This is very strange. I am having the opposite problem with run-away scrolling
while using a touchpad on a laptop. There is no problem with speed, just getting
it to stop!
