Suppose you are editing a multipage research paper and you make a correction on page 1. You do not save the document yet and you just keep on reading, while leaving the cursor on page 1, at the location where the correction was made. Suppose you are now reading the i-th page (i>>1) and you have not moved the cursor from page 1, and suppose 15 minutes have passed since you made the change on page 1. All of the sudden the focus will jump back to page 1 as the AutoSave feature kicks in. This causes you to spend countless minutes trying to find which page the document we were reading, and possibly even lose your train of thought.
When LibreOffice Writer autosaves a document, it should not auto-scroll the document to the location where the cursor is. AutoSave should not cause any scrolling action.
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: 18.104.22.168 release
Cannot reproduce. Tested on:
Ubuntu 14.04 x64
LibreOffice 22.214.171.124 release + LibreOffice 4.3 master built two days ago.
Please test on 126.96.36.199 - if you still experience the problem put the bug back in Unconfirmed status and we'll try to test again.
This happens on openSUSE 188.8.131.52
Create one page of text
Put cursor at the top
Scroll down so the cursor goes off the screen
Page stays still - good
Create two pages of text ( if not enough add more - my document has six pages )
Put cursor at top
Scroll down so the first page is completely off the screen
LO jumps back to top of first page - annoying
not reproduced under Windows using LibO 184.108.40.206
anyway since there's a Linux confirmation the status is NEW
Seems related or dup to bug 94663 and bug 93574
Removing from META Autorecovery / Autosave issues
Duping to bug 95797, although I suspect original reporter had cursor in a table like in bug 41063.
