I've recently purchased the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga and it has a touch screen.

I am wondering if LibreOffice will support this type of device in the very near future?

I'm in the same boat – LibreOffice 4.3.2.2 under Windows Pro 8.1 on a touchscreen tablet/ultrabook hybrid [1] – and I too am searching for ways to make LibreOffice Writer touch-friendly. For instance, the only way to scroll through an open document is the fiddly little scroll bar on the right of the document's window – designed to be accessed by mouse/trackpad/trackball, it's a real pain to use by fingertip (and being forced to pull out the stylus for more accurate scrolling only highlights LibreOffice's lack touch gesture support).

Q. Does anybody have any info getting LibreOffice to distinguish between a swipe gesture to scroll a document up and down, and a tap-hold-drag to select text within a document?

Thanks in advance for your time and attention. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours in disappointment and exasperation,

Tim Jones
