Description joux 2012-02-02 07:26:58 UTC
Problem description: The Writer show additional toolbars depending on the context of the text cursor, e.g. additional buttons when the cursor is in an ordered list. The additional screen space occupied by the toolbar offsets the text area accordingly, which is irritating.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Create a normal paragraph and a list with bullet points
3. Using the arrow keys, move the text cursor into the list.
4. (if necessary: if the appearing Bullets and Numbering toolbar is floating, dock it underneath the other toolbars at the top)
5. Using the arrow keys, move the text cursor from the bulleted list into the normal paragraph.
6. Using the arrow keys, move the text cursor back into the bulleted list.

Current behavior:
Whenever the additional docked toolbar takes up additional space above the text area, the text area is pushed down by the corresponding amount. Thus, the text line I was currently focusing on is moved and I need to adjust my vision.

Expected behavior:
The current scroll position of the document should be adjusted accordingly, so the display of an additional toolbar does not lead to a vertical jump of my text in the window.

Ubuntu 11.04

Thanks for bugreport
It is almost duplicate of this:
Bug 34451 - Appearing docked Toolbars cause document jumping on screen

Currently is only workarounds for this problem:
- leave annoying toolbars undocked
- dock them to bottom of screen
- create user defined toolbar with the same buttons as in annoying toolbar and place it where needed, then remove (almost all) buttons from annoying toolbar and dock it to the bottom of screen
