Description Kamil Oztunc 2014-01-20 01:52:32 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open report builder
2. Place objects and create a report
3. Try to select objects in a section

Current behavior:
Report builder scrolls up to top of the report by selecting objects on top. User cannot selects objects without selecting untargeted objects above.
Expected behavior:
Report builder should not scroll up to top of the report, without user coming close to top of the visible area with mouse. Only scrolling should happen, when user is coming close to edges. Otherwise report should not scroll anywhere to allow user to select correct objects.
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release

Don't know if I had understand it right.

You create a report and could not select objects in this report, when trying to edit the report again?
Can't confirm this - could chose objects and could move them with the mouse.

Then you write "Report builder scrolls to top ..." Do you have problems with a very large report with many textfields and many labelfields?

My system: OpenSUSE 12.3 46bit rpm, LO

could you try a more recent release and verify if this still happens?

i'm not sure if i got you right, so a example database would help too.
