Description Parameshwara Bhat 2011-03-23 00:18:15 UTC
In all Linux native applications, irrespective of Desktop Environment, one can scroll horizontally using mouse wheel on the horizontal scroll bar. But only exceptions are Openoffice, Mozilla.

I think this is a simple functionality and can be easily given to make Libreoffice feel like all other Unix applications.

All versions of openoffice / Libreoffice are affected by this bug. I guess unless this functionality is added as a feature ( which is unlikely), this bug should persist.

I cannot test this as I am running a production version and cannot afford to run test version. But the QA can easily test this in the latest version. He/she has to open any native Linux application and libreoffice and run mousewheel over the two and see the difference.

I had stopped filing bug-reports against Openoffice where nobody card for that. Hope Libreoffice will care to user feedback.

Still not available in LO 4.1.
Comment 4 Adolfo Jayme Barrientos 2013-07-10 20:57:06 UTC
Marking as enhancement. While horizontal scrolling with mouse wheel is a typical Linux behavior, wouldn't it be nice to have it under Windows as well? I think so.
Comment 5 Parameshwara Bhat 2013-07-11 04:49:57 UTC
It will sure be nice. 

This may not be a big change. It would be nice if LO can work on such small but very useful enhancements on a higher priority.
