Description isj4 2008-01-15 08:02:57 UTC
There is something about the document that
changes the behaviour of ctrl-end. Normally ctrl-end would go to the end of the
document, but with this document ctrl-end moves the focus to the footer on the
current or previous page. There is no macro that does this.

Removing the footer though Format|Page|Footer changes the behaviour of ctrl-end:
then it does absolutely nothing.

Exact version is 2.3.0, build (what ships with OpenSuSE 10.3)

MRU->FME: see attached document, in this, the cursor will be placed in the
footer of the last page instead at the end of the body text, when using Ctrl-End.

fme: The last paragraph of the document if set to hidden. Enabling "show
non-printable characters" 'resolves' the problem.

I noticed the same behaviour under OOO 3.1.1 OOO310m19 (Build 9420) and OOO
3.2.0 DEV300m55 (Build:9418), see the attached document "Ctrl_End_Test.odt".
Hitting Ctrl + End does not move the cursor to the end of the document but to
the footer area on some page (p. 11, in my case). Showing non-printable
characters does not help, removing the footer area does, however. Ctrl + Home
always works as expected.

I have a similar problem with the XTextRange method gotoEnd() that a macro calls
to move a text cursor to the doc end. The cursor only jumps to the end of the
current line (or paragraph?) however. I have attached the macro document under
issue 105196.
