Description Aron Budea 2018-05-13 09:42:34 UTC
- Open a presentation with many slides, eg. the attached one.
- Start dragging any in the Slides Pane, and try scrolling with the mousewheel up/down in the meantime.

=> Scrolling with mousewheel doesn't work while dragging the slide.
This would make it more convenient to move a slide far up/down the slide deck.

Observed using LO 6.1 master build (2de80f9a21f9601b75a2f43c07eb3e0a6509b1e6) & 3.3.0 / Ubuntu 17.10, with VCL plugins gtk3, gtk and gen.
It works fine in Windows, so the behavior is OS-specific.

Aron, *

Can not reproduce on Windows builds. But, there is a very small target to activate the scroll with click-drag.

Yes, I mentioned it works in Windows, no idea if on purpose or by accident, but would be nice if this feature would be available in other OSes as well.

I'll confirm for Linux. Someone else may write for Mac.
Comment 5 V Stuart Foote 2018-05-15 16:53:34 UTC
Sorry, I misread the issue a bit. Using the mousewheel to reorder slides does not work with Windows builds either.

With focus in the Slides preview pane the mousewhell will only scroll the list. It can not be used to reorder the selected slides. 

You _can_ drag a selection of slides to the top or the bottom of the Slides preview sorting pane.  Holding over the small targets at top or bottom will scroll the preview pane and advance the drop location.

But positioning the drop location can not be done with the mousewheel on Windows either.

Dear Aron Budea,

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 https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

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 https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

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
