Description dfraipont 2017-01-18 16:56:46 UTC
When a page is zoomed in, we have to use scroll bar to pan view.
Using middle mouse button could be easier.

There is a setting for that in Tools->Options->View.
Comment 2 dfraipont 2017-01-19 16:24:28 UTC
So there is a real bug as it doesn't work in Draw, only on Writer and Calc.
Neither for "Automatic scrolling" nor "Paste clipboard"

How to reproduce:

Open a document in Draw (here a pdf file).
Zoom on it (120%)
Click on middle mouse button and move it.
Nothing happens.

Open a document in Writer.
Do the same.
When you click on middle mouse button,
an icon with four triangles appears.
If you move the mouse pan is done.

Reproduced with Draw. I guess we can set it to a bug. In Linux at least I need to use "No function" to get the scrolling in Writer.

I have the same issue when using Center wheel button to paste in Writer. This goes for a native install Debian package .deb and also flatpak for Version:

Same here. I can't get the middle button does any action (nor panning neither paste) in none of the suite applications (writer, draw, calc...). This is LO get it from The Document Foundation site and running Debian 7 (64 bits) and XFCE. Middle click button runs as expected (paste) in any other program in the system (firefox, mousepad, etc...).
