Description Telesto 2017-03-09 09:18:15 UTC
Writer scrolling is quite jumpy when selecting an image which extends to the bottom of the page, if the selection is immediately done after a previous selection.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open attached file
2. The sad egg should be partly visible (adjust zoomlevel accordingly)
3. Click on the tubes image
4. Now try to move the sad egg a bit upwards by clicking on the sad egg.. 

For comparison (not jumping):
1. Click on the tubes
2. Click on the paragraph below the tubes
3. Click on the sad egg

Actual Results:  
Writer is scrolling down. Bringing the egg image in the middle of the screen

Expected Results:
Same as without having selected an image first. No scrolling

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Dear Telesto,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
