Description Matti Aarnio 2014-06-17 10:54:53 UTC
Problem description: 
  Sometimes Libreoffice renders messy displays.

Steps to reproduce:
  LibreOffice is having multiple documents open and their
  displays are scattered over my multi-display X-desktop.

  When I scroll an XLS table (longer than fits in display
  window), but have latest window selection at other
  libreoffice window (like Writer's window): scrolling
  (with mouse scroll wheel) over XLS table produces messy
  display of XLS.

  When I select the XLS table, and then scroll over it, there
  are no problems in XLS display output.

  When I select anything else, and then scroll over XLS table,
  there are no problems in XLS display output.

Additional observations:

  Multi-displaying same document in Writer seem to sometimes
  confuse which display is being used.  This happens especially
  when zoom levels are different.
Operating System: Fedora
Version: release

Hi Matti -

Sorry but this  is going into NEEDINFO. We need much clearer instructions. We can't reproduce based on "sometimes" and "multiple documents" on "multiple displays"

Please provide clear easy to follow reproducible steps and then mark the bug as UNCONFIRMED. Apologies for the long delay

In Writer, if multiple windows are open on a document with a table, when a change is made on a row in one window, the other window will scroll to that same row, which defeats the user's need to see two places in the document on a consistent basis for cross-checking and editing the (large) table.

Test - open a document containing a long table (>10 pages)
Open a second window for that same doc,
Scroll one window down to page 7 or later
make a change in the window (first) near the beginning of the document.
Result (improper): Second window scrolls to 1st page where edit was made in first window

Result expected:  Second window does not scroll to edit but rather displays same page (and row) as it did before edit was made (even if multiple rows were added or deleted on other page of same document)

We need a sample document that is >10 pages....can't ask that QA reproduce a 10 page document. Once you do so - please set the bug as UNCONFIRMED else it will be closed as INVALID. Thanks
