This is may be a bug or it may be something that was programmed on purpose, but either way it's the most annoying problem I face. It is the only problem I have with this software. In Writer (the only one I use) I write novels, and sometimes I scroll back to a previous page, looking for something. But when the program auto-saves, it jumps back to where the cursor is. I lose the place I was looking for and have to find it again. This is beyond frustrating (especially when you have 200+ pages of work). Is there a way to add a switch so that this feature is optional? I would much appreciate it if it didn't jump around every three minutes because it makes it that much more difficult to do my work.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ensure auto-save is on.
2. Have multiple pages in a document.
3. Put cursor on any page other than the one you're on.
The page jumps to wherever the cursor is upon auto-save.
It should stay wherever you are, regardless of where the cursor is.
