Description Zoltán Hegedüs 2013-10-23 20:08:40 UTC
If I select a text with mouse, the end of the text is on the other page of the display (maybe on the same page on the paper), the paging is too fast: Writer quick skips (jump through) the end of the part what I want to select, and if I go back, Writer skips again: the selecting always bigger or smaller than I want, never fits. It is very hard to select the correct text.

Hi Zoltán,

thanks for the issue - I confirm it.
Already an older problem. My advise always is: set cursors, use scrol bar, click with Shft pressed.
But indeed, fluent mouse behaviour wourl be great here.

Definitely still ridiculously fast across page boundaries, or any time that you are scrolling beyond the visible screen.
Tested with: Linux (16.04) and LO 5.3 compiled development
Comment 10 tommy27 2018-06-21 16:03:37 UTC
still present in LibO Win7 x64
Comment 11 Youqing 2018-11-29 08:33:38 UTC
Still a little too fast in (x64)
Comment 12 Xisco Faulí 2019-01-11 20:38:00 UTC
Lowering importance: Highest + Inherit from OOo doesn't make much sense at this point anymore...
