I edit my document. The caret is a at specific position in the document. I scroll it via vertical scrollbar or via mouse wheel. So the caret doesn't move. It's normal.
So, at this moment, i view the part of the document that I want to view.
When I do save (File/Save or CTRL + S or click on icon), the document auto scroll to show the caret. It's painful, really painful, because i lose my concentration.
This was corrected target:5.3.0 target:188.8.131.52 for bug 95797
Verified that correction remains in place for current master/184.108.40.206alpha0+ and current 5.3.1 release.
Still the residual issue of jump on save/autosave when edit cursor focus is in a table cell, bug 41063
So if working with Writer tables that is 41063, otherwise it is correct--no jump on save/autosave.
