Description Roland Hughes 2019-12-03 21:56:28 UTC
Description:
Prior to updating to 6.3.3.2 whenever I reopened a book I was working on the cursor would automatically reposition to its last place. This no longer happens and the keyboard shortcut no longer works. Yes, I have my user data information filled in. This was working until I was told to upgrade when tracking down another bug.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Take a 400+ page document
2.Edit something around 200 pages in, save, exit LO
3.Right click on the document file and select open in LO



Actual Results:
Document opens and you are back at the very tippy top

Expected Results:
Document should load and cursor should return to its last position in the document.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: Yes


OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
The keyboard shortcut doesn't even work.

It is not a bug. You need to enter your name into Tools - Options - LibreOffice - User data and here enter at least first name or last name.

Please answer to know that you solved this.

It's a bug. My name information was filled in both before and after the upgrade from PPA. See image. Last position saving always worked before hand, doesn't work at all now.
Comment 3 Roland Hughes 2019-12-04 19:19:11 UTC
Just conducted another test. The restoring of last position used to work with both docx and odt. Now it appears to only be working with odt. Maybe it wasn't supposed to work with docx, but it did.
Comment 4 BogdanB 2019-12-04 19:34:21 UTC
Confirm your bug. Working with .odt but not with the same document saved as .docx

Thank you.

Most odd though. One would think the last position information would be stored with "recent" file list information. It shouldn't care about the file type. Once the file is loaded, jump to last position.

Thanks again for confirmation.

This is a duplicate. 
For opening DOCX saved in MSO there's bug 112742. 
And for saving bug 112740.
I guess this refers to saving, but 112742 must be solved first.

When reporting and confirming, most important is to first search, please do.
Comment 8 BogdanB 2019-12-11 12:00:31 UTC
Ok, Timur, I will try.

I did search, but your search tool isn't very holistic. When I searched for "restore last cursor position" the bugs you flag this duplicate of weren't in the first screen of results. What it found wasn't even close.

According to the "WordPro Tabbed Divisions" request conversation, the larger number of duplicates the higher the priority.
