Description J22Gim 2018-09-04 19:53:39 UTC
When I'm reading a Writer document, no matter which part is in the screen at the moment, when I press "save" the screen jumps to wherever the cursor is located at. 

This is not intuitive nor "good UI practice" because a button/instruction is intended to do one thing (ie save the current document) but does an additional action, unintended by the user (ie jump to cursor).

Can this be changed to a more intuitive behavior, eg. when one press "save" Writer just saves? If the user wants to go to cursor, there are more intuitive ways (eg press any letter or arrow so Writer takes you where the cursor is located at).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a Writer file, with more than one page of content
2. Place the cursor at the beginning of the text 
3. Scroll down (using just the mouse or scroll bars) to page 2
4. Press "save" button (or CTRL-S)

Actual Results:
The document is saved and you are taking away from 2nd page and taken to the cursor (ie 1st page).

Expected Results:
The document is saved and you continue with whatever view you currently have, without unintended jumps.

Reproducible: Always

Can't reproduce with Version:

CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.4; UI render: default; VCL: gtk2;

So I guess it can be called fixed.

Thank you for testing. Setting correct status.
Comment 4 J22Gim 2018-10-08 16:45:54 UTC
I just found it again:

1) open the testFile.docx
2) place the cursor anywhere in page 1
3) to to page 2 without moving the cursor (ie using the scroll bar)
4) press "Save" (or CTRL+S) and save as DOCX
Result: writers takes me to the current cursor location.
