Description sworddragon2 2016-06-07 21:33:46 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

1. Open Writer.
2. Enter newlines until the end of site 1.
3. Open the search with Ctrl + F.
4. Enter any string and click 2 times the "Find Next" button.
5. Click the "Find Previous" button.

After step 4 the document scrolls to the top and after step 5 it scrolls to the bottom while the document should never scroll as the search does not match.
