Description Nikola Rajačić 2011-11-10 11:54:59 UTC
With the mouse wheel set to move "one screen at a time" (in the Windows Control Panel), when scrolling with it, writer just moves to the begining of the next/previous page.

The expected behaviour (as seen in other similar programs) would be scrolling the the page in the wanted direction for a length equal to the vertical lenght of the area visible at the current zoom level.

Basically, it should move for about as much as pressing pgup/pgdown would, without moving the caret.

Thanks for bugreport
Please, verify if in last version of LibreOffice still reproducible
Comment 2 Nikola Rajačić 2012-03-07 04:05:42 UTC
Can confirm for 3.5.1 RC1, the latest version available for download @ the site.
Comment 3 sasha.libreoffice 2012-03-07 05:21:06 UTC
Thanks for additional testing. I also reproduced it on Windows XP 32 bit
Comment 4 Hb 2013-02-24 10:24:26 UTC
Reproducible in 4.0.2 under Windows7 64bit too.

Sure that this is an UI bug?
Comment 5 Hb 2013-02-24 10:44:50 UTC
UI related page-by-page navigation issue in bug 51241.
Comment 6 Hb 2013-02-25 07:05:53 UTC
A temporary help is given by programs which change the Mouse Wheel events to PageUp/PageDown keystrokes. 

1. Download http://www.highrez.co.uk/downloads/XMouseButtonControl.htm 
2. Add a handler set for the application soffice.bin.
3. For Wheel Up set Simulated Keys (pressed)[{PGUP]}

Dear Nikola Rajačić,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
