Since 22.214.171.124 Shift+F5 = "Restore Editing View" (means: go to the line last edited) doesn't work anymore.

*** Bug 84821 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Not reproduced on Linux (Ubuntu, 64 bit) and OSX (10.10, 64 bit) with LO 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 and 4.5 master
So, just as with bug 80960, there is some confusion as to the circumstances which would cause this.
Note that while the initial position on load (as in bug 80960) is affected by whether you have set your name in the global configuration, when I try it, Shift+F5 goes to the cursor position saved in the file regardless of whether a name is set in global configuration.
Created attachment 112456 [details]
Sample file with last cursor position set at a known position (the "X")
Shift-F5 should place the cursor after the "X" on the middle line
With attachment 112456 [details], cursor is not in correct position on open. Shift+F5 does nothing.
Same result from scratch.

Shift+F5 works ok with 64-bit Ubuntu.

Confirm Shift+F5 is not functioning with

but it does work correctly same system with

Note the same behavior, i.e. 18.104.22.168 broken, 22.214.171.124alpha0+ works, with these 32-bit builds for issue of opening to last edited position when user data details (first/last/initials) are filled in, bug 80960
Have to bisect a bit but suspect Kendy's commit for bug 80960
did some good here.
Also, for 64-bit Windows builds on same system Shift+F5 function is mostly correct--except for issues of bug 51217 bug 62398, where the cursor placement can be off by a dozen characters.

and with (first/last/initials set) it opens vicinity of last edited position.
Yes, Shift+F5 "Restore Edit View" is "Mostly" fixed now for the 32-bit builds. It and the 64-bit builds still have some cursor placement issues.
Bisect range... 2015-01-27..2015-01-31
"Mostly" in that the exact cursor position on moving the edit view seems to drift away from the last position edited.
@Kendy, Maxim -- does the math for the convertTwipToMm100 for ViewTop and ViewLeft need to be refined to more precisely place the cursor?
The document provided as example has no author. Therefore it is a bad example for testing the cursor position at opening.
If you place the cursor on the X and then save the document (using LibreOffice 188.8.131.52) when you reopen it with the same user it will show the cursor on the X.
If you open the document from another user account it will jump to the same exact position by pressing Shift+F5
At least under Windows XP Pro x86 SP3 everything is now working as expected.
