I'm not able to use the vertical scroll bar via the mouse in calc I can click on a cell and I can see the formula and the numbers/letters highlight, but the actual cell does not highlight. Then when I click a few times in the cell, the cursor blinks very, very fast.

The other odd part is, if I manually scroll down 20-30 rows down it all works correctly, then when I scroll back to the top as soon as I get to the top couple of rows, I lose the cursor etc....

(I checked the use profile with safe mode the issue persist.) If I open a blank calc file it doesn't happen. I opened another calc file and it didn't happen.


I'm using Ubuntu 19.10 LO

I'm not sure where you are pointing me to, but I don't have those options. I was able to see Tools ▸ Options ▸ LibreOffice ▸ View and on the top right I see two options (Graphics output: use hardware acceleration, use anti-aliasing). I'm on Ubuntu 19.10 and LO

Visually, I have both scroll bars. FWIW, I was able to install and change the shell theme for ubuntu and the problem persisted.

Do I need to file a bug report?
