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.

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:
more detail on this bulk operation: http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/RFC-Operation-Spamzilla-tp3607474p3607474.html
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.
Hello. Any news on this?
I think this should be on MAB.
Extremely frustrating and time-consuming. Why did you remove a feature which was so useful?
I'm also missing this usability feature and hope to see it implemented.
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.
So, there seems to be an agreement on having the mouse wheel scroll between slides rather than up and down; and the last comment was from 3 years ago, and got no objections. So, perhaps it's time for traction on this?
I will make a potential alternative suggestion though; not sure if it's better: Mousewheel scrolls slides for zoom levels where the entire slide is in view, and scrolls the viewport on higher zoom levels. This sacrifices behavior consistency in favor of "hitting two birds with one stone", catering to each interest in scrolling when it is more relevant. Again, I'm not sure this is the better option, but something to consider.
