Description:
hi, i have the following problem: 
1. scrolling with a mouse is fine in LibreOffice
2. Scrolling with a laptop keypad is way too fast - so fast it's unusable
3. scrolling with keypad in other programmes is fine, so slowing down overall keypad scrolling would solve Libreoffice scrolling but would make scrolling in those other programmes too slow

Rik

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use the keypad to scroll in LibreOffice Writer
2.
3.

Actual Results:
srolling is too fast

Expected Results:
scrolling should be normal speed


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

Hi, 
I have a ASUS ZenBook UX430UA
I have the Libre Office version 6.2.3.2
I have this bug of the track pad way too sensitive that make the scrolling way too fast
Comment 14 honorine.brice 2019-05-18 07:04:17 UTC
About the bug of the scrolling too fast with track pad, I use Writer most of the time, for the rare time I use other apps of Libre Office I haven't notice something like that. So this bug is on Writer for sure, other apps I'm not sure sorry.

I have the same problem on my Acer Swift 3, windows 10.
It's very unpleasant and makes the software unusable when I'm on the go.
Comment 17 ggeorgakoudis 2020-06-22 05:45:40 UTC
I'm experiencing a similar bug, I'm not sure if it is duplicate. Horizontal scrolling using a touchpad is too fast after resizing the page (changing width/height) in Impress (Slides > Properties > Paper Format) or Draw (Page > Properties > Paper Format).

The laptop is Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen 7, operating system Ubuntu 20.04, Libreoffice version 6.4.3-0ubuntu0.20.04.1.

Thanks,
Giorgis

I have this problem also,
Dell XPS 17 9700 (2020 Model)
Microsoft Precision Touchpad.
Mouse operation is fine, trackpad scrolls way to fast in Writer and Calc and all Libre Office Components.

Info:
Version: 6.3.6.2 (x64)
Build ID: 2196df99b074d8a661f4036fca8fa0cbfa33a497

Comment 20 Steve 2020-07-14 00:28:06 UTC
I also have access to a XPS 15 Model Precision 5520 running Win 10, so I loaded Libre Office V6.3.6.2 (X64) on it and it does NOT have the scrolling issue. This PC also uses the precision touchpad driver as the XPS 17 that I tested above. So it appears that the Precision touchpad driver on its own is not the root cause of the problem, there is something about the actual touch pad hardware also.
