When the cursor is on the last line of a document, down-arrow should move it to the end of the line, and correspondingly up-arrow to the beginning of the line on the first line of the document.
This is how many(/most?) other editors work, and it is a good feature. I cannot think of a situation where that behaviour would be a disadvantage, and even though one can get there with end/home, it is more practical to have it on the same key, especially since the home/end keys are far removed from the arrow keys on some keyboards.

Thanks for the issue - I see no objection
(but for me, no advantage too, to be honest).
> New & cheers,
It's purely for convenience - but if one spends a lot of time in front of a Writer window, it's those little conveniences that matter.
I might also add that a similar bug/feature re[port|quest] that I filed with KDE's editor Kate in 2006 has now finally been implemented! Even before that, I filed the same issue with OpenOffice, and never heard a word, other than "That's a silly request!"
So thanks for the positive reception!
