Description Aron Budea 2016-11-28 22:59:45 UTC
1. Open this document in Writer:
2. Try to slowly scroll down with mousewheel.

Behavior: view jumps back to start of page, impossible to get to next page (with mousewheel).
Note: it's possible to get past the page by scrolling vigorously.

Tested and reproduced with,, 5.3beta1 / Windows 7.
Tested and not reproduced with
=> regression

Might be Windows-only, needs confirmation in a different OS.

reproduced under Win8.1 64 using LibO

I see that there's a kind of "huge" text cursor blinking in the first page...
looks like the text cursor became so big to fill almost the entire page.
maybe there's some conflitct between scrolling and cursor position.

Hi Aron, Tommy,

First of all, "Read only" mode allows the scroll down instantly.
Else, in "Edit mode", we have to wait around twenty seconnds before to scroll, but after this time scroll down is available.
This seems avoidable by selecting the first image, and setting Wrap to Wrap Through.
After saving, there's no longer cursor, and "scroll down" is available
at once.

Do you confirm it?

Hi Jacques, great observations. I an confirm what you wrote, except setting wrap to wrap through, that doesn't help in my case (

Reproduced even with 3.3.0 / Ubuntu 16.04. Adjusting version.

Comment 8 Aron Budea 2019-07-08 01:12:55 UTC
The behavior slightly changed between to (and is still the same in 6.3 beta2): you eventually get to scroll down, the view only jumps back after each first couple of scrolls, but not afterwards. Another visible difference is that in the caret flickers very quickly, and in first it doesn't blink at all, and later blinks normally.

Still, I'd expect scrolling to be visible right away... the situation definitely improved, though.
