This is a problem that has existed since OpenOffice. It's not really a random jump, but a jerking of the display back to the page where your cursor is located. Apparently the initial designers didn't understand that wherever you are currently reading is your actual focus, not where the cursor is. This jumping also occurs whenever an auto file save happens. I write novels too and for people like us this is astonishingly annoying as many, many, many times it happens within the span of simply trying to scroll down to the next page.

Sad as this may sound, stop every once in a while and click on the left button, repositioning the cursor to the currently visible page or use the page down button which drags the cursor along. Unfortunately, for novel writers, many times we would LIKE to leave the cursor where we are typing and read on for story information that would affect the text currently being written.

Other than those unsatisfactory answers, I've haven't been able to find a method of turning off the forced 'focus' return.

Capitalization has behaved this way since OpenOffice. This is, if anything, a newspaper convention.

I write novels, lots of dialogue. Dialogue convention is punctuation within quotes ends a sentence unless immediately followed by punctuation (eg: "Damn!", he said.).

I only use Writer, so without a toggle I have no reason to switch to Libre. I only check in once in a while to see if this (and a couple of other issues) have been addressed.
