Description Christoph Fischer 2013-08-25 13:25:02 UTC
When a slide has lots of notes attached an the user scrolls down in the notes field, switching to the next slide will leave the notes field scrolled down. In the worst case, if the this next slide only has a few lines of notes, it will even appear as if there were no notes at all, because the notes field is scrolled down to an empty space.

Changing slides always should rewind the notes field's position to the first line of the text.

Please, attach a test document and explain step by step how to reproduce the problem. Without detailed informations it is not possible to do further investigations.

Best regards. JBF

Steps to reproduce this bug:

1. Open the test document.
2. Connect with the Android remote. You should see the notes for slide 1 there.
3. On your android device, scroll down all the way to the end of slide 1 notes.
4. On your android device, click on slide 2.
5. On your android device, you should now see slide 2, but an empty notes section. The notes are there, as you will see when you scroll up in the notes field.

The problem is that the notes field stays scrolled down from viewing slide 1, instead of scrolling back up to the beginning when you change the slide. The current implementation of scrolling on Android does not give any visual indication of this, making the notes field simply appear empty.

This is fixed in the rewrite. (expect an update along with the 4.2.0 release, i.e. end of January)

Comment 5 Christoph Fischer 2013-12-16 14:14:49 UTC
Very cool!

Is there a chance that the rewrite would also cover bug #68528?

Moving bug to (new) 'Impress Remote' product.
