Description 00 2018-10-24 07:56:57 UTC
Description:
When the Writer file is opened, the “Dialog Window” of the “Shfit+F5” button will appear.

Note:
1. When the Writer file is opened, press the “Shfit+F5” button to return to the last edited position.
2, many people do not know, press the "Shfit + F5" button function.



Word:
1. Because Word has a hint design, I think Writer should also have a hint design.
2. When you open Word, on the right side of the screen, you will be prompted to return to the location where you last edited.
3, because it can not be copied, so use this method to solve.



Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

In principal, I support this idea as I often miss the auto-restoring of last editing view. Till now I didn't know this shortcut.

Only the wording in the dialog must be adapted.
And in the Options dialog we need a checkbox to undo the user's choice.

I thought about it, the idea is the opposite.
Directly change to Writer every time, it will automatically return to the last edited position.
This design is the easiest design without pressing the mouse.
To go back to the "first page", just pull up the "vertical scroll" and you're done.

Note: Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math, Base, all use this design.

When the Writer file is opened, it will automatically return to the location where it was last edited.

Instead of extra dialogs for every hint we could introduce a "tip of the day" (we have such tips on Twitter right now) that could also serve a "What's new" info on new releases. The idea is on the UX-proposals list but apparently not filed as a ticket.

This indeed works, but only if you have a name set in Tools > Options > LibreOffice ... General

A bit too in the face of the user, IMO. But a useful shortcut, that definitely deserves to be in the list function keys in the Help

Does knowing this feature solve your problem, by the way?

thanks for confirming this.
Hearing the discussion in the issue and the UX-meeting, let's keep it as is.

Still then would be my suggestion to improve documentation on Shift+F5.
I take freedom to change the issue accordingly.

Change summary from
  Dialog window to promote "Shift+F5" shortcut
to
  "Shift+F5" shortcut is not listed in Writer Help on short cuts

thanks for bringing this under our attention, 和尚蟹.

Olivier, please have a look at the help to make sure the behavior is well documented.
Comment 12 00 2019-01-11 07:08:04 UTC
otherwise,
Add "Shift+F5 button" in the "Toolbar" and use the mouse to press it conveniently.

Toolbar is preserved for frequently used functions and this isn't one. But you can customize it yourself (Tools > Options > Customize > Toolbar).
Comment 14 John van Someren 2019-02-27 21:22:42 UTC
Some of the comments I have just read come from people who are not aware that this Shift F5 feature already exists (so long as you are the named person who originated the document). I certainly agree with those comments that point towards better documenting, hints etc.

However, my (now extremely old) memory tells me that this 'bug report' was actually an enhancement request. And if I'm wrong, I have somewhere, somewhen added this enhamcement request to your tracker system.

Here is the feature I liked in MS Word and what I would like to see in Writer: In MS Word, in addition to its use when a document is just loaded, you can use Shift F5 at any time to cycle round the most recent four places where you made edits. 

I always use this 'last 4 edits' feature when my clumsy fingers hit a navigation key by mistake and I go up a page or wherever. Shift F5 always brings me right back. 

I'm not very familiar with your system of tracking bugs etc. Is it possible the status of this item can be changed from "resolved" to "Enhancement request"?
Comment 15 John van Someren 2019-02-27 21:25:00 UTC
The enhancement request I mentioned in comment 14 might well be 92821
