This is more a feature request - could not find a link to "feature".
One of the few useful things that Microsoft Word has left intact hides under the command "Shift F5", and is called "Return to previous cursor position". This is in essence a cursor movement tracker which records any movement that is not prompted by simply entering text (even paste operations classify as non-text entry events).
Especially when editing and revising larger documents, this facility is a massive time saver as it allows to go to another point in a document (for instance, to check or edit a reference) and then jump back to a previous edit point, or even one before that.
It would be worth studying if this could not be implemented somewhere - for those using LibreOffice in anger it would be substantially increased usability.
Using platform OSX 10.7.4, LibO 3.5.4. Happy to beta test this.
This feature already exists in LibreOffice.

If that doesn't work under OSX please file a new bug report.
I apologize for the previous comment.
I just realized you meant jumping to the previous cursor position within the same working session.
I'm not sure LibreOffice can do that already. If not it would be a nice addition.
Setting severity to "enhancement" as this appears to be an enhancement request.
I don't see confirmation that this is a valid enhancement request - as such, moving to UNCONFIRMED for confirmation.
may be an useful enhacement. status NEW
The following article is better than this article.

This newby (to both Mac and LibreOffice) thinks that this bug should be made a very high priority as it leads (for me) to much lost time compared to working with Win/Word.
Spent ages looking for this shortcut. Amazed to find that it doesn't exist. Please fix it as soon as possible.
On a more upbeat note, it's great to be able to post such a request here. You certainly can't do that with Microsoft.
