Thanks for quick response.

I checked with version Problem still exists.

Maybe I didn't explain very well.

I use a presentation of 10+ slides and 2 displays. One 
display shows presentation and second shows presenter 
console in "Slides" mode as seen in attached screenshot.

I start presentation and walk through the slides by using
arrow keys. Presenter console shows 9 complete slides. 
This number of shown slides depends on size of display.
Active slide is marked by grey frame around slide.

Now I reach 10-th slide. 10-th slide is shown on first 
display (presentation). It's marked as active by grey 
frame on presenter console (second display).  But it's
not shown completely. The slides don't scroll. 

This disturbs usebility because you want to be focused
at your slides and don't want to make slides visible at
presenter console by additionally using scrollbar.

You may compare with digikam while looking through a set 
of fotos. You can navigate with arrow keys and active foto 
is always completely shown.

Repro 6.3. 
What adds more to the bug is that we also cannot scroll by mouse, arrows, keyboard keys.. just with a slider.
