Description schummer.m 2012-06-22 04:51:11 UTC
When trying to edit an OLE object like a drawing in a document with >1 page, Writer always jumps somewhere in the middle of the document, regardless where the drawing is actually positioned within the document. This makes it necessary to scroll all the way through the document to the position where the OLE object is situated before you can edit it.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Create document in writer containing several pages.
2) Insert OLE object (drawing) at the end of the document (Insert->Object->OLE Object->drawing)
3) double-click on created OLE object

Writer jumps to another (random?) position somewhere in the middle of the document.

This also happens when inserting an already existing drawing as OLE object.
This behavior was only reproducable in OS X, but not in Linux for me.
