Description Telesto 2018-02-23 09:08:17 UTC
In essence the same as bug 41063, however without complexity of the auto-save. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached file
2. Zoom in; de second page shouldn't be visible
3. Make sure that the cursor is at the top of the table
4. Scroll down to the bottom of the second page (without a change to the cursor)
5. Press add a row below

Actual Results:  
Screen jumps back to the cursor position

Expected Results:
Depending on the opinion of bug 115781.
*Cursor & screen position should jump to the new row; or
*Screen position should stay the same

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

You did attempt to fix the "Saving while in table causes view to jump to cursor position" a while ago. However, drowning because of the progressbar (Bug 41063 comment 57).

This looks like the same bug, without all the saving complexity ;-). I thought you might be interested..

Warning.. there are more cases.. and the assessment about the need to block the jump to cursor sometimes matter of taste/opinion/argument 

Where Mike says, the change changing to cursor making sense.. while I'm kind of disagreeing (or lacking the insight of the scope of the change). 

So this topic includes own assessments of the matter ;-)

Still reproducible with

Version: (X86_64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 77cd3d7ad4445740a0c6cf977992dafd8ebad8df
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 19045; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI: en-GB
Calc: CL threaded

But taking into account bug 115781 (espacially comment 6) I would close it as WF or as duplicate of bug 115781, because I don't see the fundamental difference.

Telesto, could you please explain?

Heiko, do youthink, it's a duplicate or a WF?

Bug 115781 was about to move the caret to the added row/column and we rejected this. This ticket is about the view port and any modification to the document, typing or inserting, should scroll back. In fact, if I scroll down and add a row, the view moves back to the position of the caret.
