Scroll command (mouse or touchpad) whilst hovering over the tabs for different sheets does not scroll left or right. When using multiple sheets, this is very useful (and available on other, M$ products) in order to scroll then merely select the appropriate tab, rather than clicking Ctrl-PgDn/PgUp repeatedly
Steps to reproduce:
1. Hover over tabs
2. Scroll Up/Down/L/R using touchpad gesture or Mouse wheel turn
3. Nothing happens
Nothing happens. I end up flicking through each tab in sequence.
Up & Left scrolls move visible tabs to right (without selecting them).
Right & Down scrolls move visible tabs to left (without selecting them).
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: 3.5.4 release
Indeed, that would be useful for documents with lot of sheets.
That never worked in LibO / OOo
May be we should have a separate bug for the corresponding function in Draw / Impress?!
Thanks for viewing/editting.
Perhaps this it could be changed from Calc to All LibO products rather than separate bugs, (depends upon how people find bugs, I guess, or perhaps other bugs pointing to this generalised bug) as it would be universally handy where tabs are used. It exists in Firefox and other programs and would good to see it as standard.

This bug fix is mentioned in the release notes of the coming LibreOffice 5.0 (see release notes https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/5.0). Therefore it would be wonderful if this feature really worked well, otherwise it should not be mentioned in the release notes. In the notes it reads:
The tab bar can be scrolled with the mouse wheel now. tdf#59471

This feature works well on my platform:
Windows 7/64 & Version: 184.108.40.206.beta1
Build ID: 0a16c3dda4150008d9be6f24cbd15ac198d116d3
Locale: fr-FR (fr_FR)
It is only effective if all the tabs can not be displayed. I have completed the Release Notes accordingly.

Well, that’s kind of expected… why would you want a scrolling tab bar if nothing can be scrolled? ;-)

Well, I think you missed my first sentence: "This feature works well" ;-)
The very fact that Mike asks the question shows that an explanation was necessary

Nah, it seems he took an automatic approach to spam many bug reports with the same comment, so I wouldn’t be so sure.
