Description J22Gim 2018-09-13 13:34:59 UTC
Description:
When applying an intended action (ie change paragraph property), Writer adds non-intended behavior (ie moves the current view to the end of the file).
This makes it quite annoying, especially when working with several pages-long files because you have to manually search wherever you were writing/reading to come back to the same document location you were at before applying the change.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open/create a file with at least 2 pages of any text
2. Place your cursor at any point except the end of the file (eg at the begining of the 1st page).
3. Select all text
3. Change the "blow paragraph spacing" to any number

Actual Results:
Writer applies the change but jumps to the end of the file.

Expected Results:
Writer applies the change without changing the location of the current cursor or view.


Reproducible: Always

Dear J22Gim,

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 http://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
