Description Timur 2011-06-10 10:16:59 UTC
I assume we need to open again issues from OO bugzilla. So I'd like to open a
bug for an option to scroll mousewheel to change slides in Impress when editing and slide is fully shown in the window. Request is originally available at

There is a lengthy discussion there, starting with something like: It would be nice to have an option to change the page, a la pageup/pagedown, when scrolling with the mouse wheel in impress. Right now, it scrolls the slide in the OO window.

The same issue on a new address: https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=10931

Same behavior in 3.5.0 beta 2.

Hmm. So ppt does something like that, though not sure it is entirely nice - trades in control when zooming into single slides over scrolling through the deck. Samuel, would you want to bring this issue to ux-advise for some UX scrutiny?

I just did. I will report back here when a decision has been made.

Extremely frustrating and time-consuming.  Why did you remove a feature which was so useful?
Comment 9 samtuke 2017-07-10 13:03:40 UTC
I'm also missing this usability feature and hope to see it implemented.
Comment 10 Heiko Tietze 2018-06-13 19:50:15 UTC
We should change the current just wheel action to alt+wheel and introduce an option where users can decide

( ) Next/previous slide
(o) Scroll within current slide

Likely an easyhack.
