Description carrt7 2020-01-30 22:18:28 UTC
With large text document displayed in 10-pt type,zoom factor 100%, a single 2-finger swipe down the touchpad immediately scrolls past 2-3 entire pages.  Zoom factor makes no difference.   
Windows > Touchpad > Mouse Properties Window > Wheel tab shows mouse wheel set to "scroll 3 lines per notch".  Adjusting this to minimum (1 line per notch) only slows the 2-finger scroll slightly - and slows all other apps scrolling to a crawl. (No mouse in use.)

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  In Writer, open any lengthy text document (several pages)
2.  in "Touchpad settings" ensure "Drag 2 fingers to scroll" is checked
3.  Swipe up or down the touchpad with two fingers

Actual Results:
The text is now located 40-80 lines (about 2 pages) above/below the previous location - it is hard to find your way back.

Expected Results:
The text should scroll around the same amount as a webpage in a brower would - about half a screenful (for this bug report I am making in Firefox), similar to other apps on the PC - which all respond fairly uniformly to scrolling manouvres.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
There are numerous similar reports on ask.libreoffice.org over the past 2 years, some using a mouse and others the touch-pad.  Many comment that this occurs with Libre Office but not with other apps.  On this computer, the MS Notepad app scrolls about 10 lines with the same 2-finger swipe.
