Is it possible to adjust the scrolling speed in all LibreOffice apps?

Did you want to state that none of the answers already given did work for you? If so, upvoting anything wouldn’t be ueseful or resonable at all.

If you suspect it’s a bug of LibO, you need to go to bugs@libreoffice.org and find out if the bug is already reported. If so you can comment on it there, if not you can create a report.

(This thread was visited thousands of times in more than 4 !/2 years and nobody linked to a bug. The many “metoo” contributions won’t help anybody. This is not a bug tracking site)

Agreed. I have filed bug report #130303 for this problem in Windows, today 30jan20

I am having the same problem in OS X. I can’t use scrollwheels. Too painful. Too painful by far. I use a special scrolling app. I have reasonable scrolling speeds in other apps, but now suddenly have lightning-fast migraine-worsening scrolling speeds, and no control in LibreOffice.

If you have the same problem why didn’t you rather upvote the original question rather than providing a non answer?

If you are on linux (and maybe even on a mac) then this might set your scrolling speed slower (copy paste it into a terminal window):

env SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk libreoffice --writer

It sets the environment variable ‘SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN’ to the value ‘gtk’ and then launches libre office writer.
From what I understand this changes how libre office looks and behaves on input. So it changes how it gets the mouse input and makes the speed functional.

I dont know if this will work for calc.

Go to Tools > Options, and under LibreOffice, choose View. Set the Middle mouse button dropdown to Automatic scrolling. After doing this I found it was still fast but not so fast as to be unusable.

I can confirm that this answer helps a lot, I had Middle mouse button set to Paste from clipboard and scrolling was terrible (very high speed and extremely sensitive to change vertical/horizontal direction); then I followed this suggestion and scrolling is usable now: fast but not “furious” and no unexpected changes in vertical/horizontal directions.

I found changing that option to ‘No Function’ may have made it marginally slower. For me, the error is predominantly when clicking and dragging or Ctrl+scrolling (zooming). My fingers need to remain fixed on the trackpad and transfer pressure, and still it isn’t reasonably controllable. I feel a bug report coming on.
Ubuntu 18.04LTS (been happening for years on various LTS versions)

Mine was already set this way, and the scrolling is still insanely fast.

What I find annoying is that the scrollbar behaves differently from other apps on Windows 10. The scrollbar in LO seems to reflect the position in the document. So when you click below the current position marker, it moves the position in the document so that the current position marker moves to where you clicked. Similarly if you click above it. IE it behaves differently to other scrollbars on Windows 10. I think that’s why it appears to move fast as it’s moving the view to where you’ve clicked. In order to achieve anything like normality is to use the PAGE-UP and PAGE-DOWN keys. Or alternatively drag the current position marker until you see the bit of the document you want. What would be really great is if the behaviour changed to what other apps do in Windows 10 or alternatively provide an option so that people can decide how they want the scrollbars to behave.

I have a similar problem on Win 7. If I click in the scroll bar above the current position it scrolls all the way to the top (or bottom) of the document. On a Calc sheet with several hundred or thousands of rows, this can mandate a coffee break as I have to wait for the scrolling to finish because once it starts scrolling, there is no way to interrupt it. Please offer a solution.

I encountered similar problem too. When I scroll down LO Calc it scrolls too fast. Three rows contain text that extends cells’ height so theese cells’ height is approximately equals to work area height. When I try to do minimum scroll movement, and work area jumps so the 4-th row is at the top of the work area.
The issue with scroll working dependently of row height. It is very ugly behavior. Please, fix it.

in Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center, select your device, and then select Basic settings. Depending on the mouse model you are using, select Wheel or Touch Strip. Select Identify programs that don’t scroll correctly.

@dwarka , to prevent you to spam all requests adressing this scroll issue with a possibly very limited solution for only a few users:

1.) Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center is only available for users of a Microsoft Keyboard or Mouse. In a Windwos 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 without that there is no option for this. As well not in Linux.

2.) Most of the requests deal with the use of a touchpad, not scrolling with a mouse.

This happens to me occassionally. It starts to scroll 100+ lines at a time, and even trying to zoom in and out using CTRL+Wheel makes it really big or really small.

I simply closed everything and rebooted my computer and it works normally again.

I wish there was a logical solution, but since I can’t find one, this seems to be the way to go for me.

For me, setting the MMB in Options → LibreOffice → View to “no function” fixed the screel wheel problem … it’s now consistent with every other application on my Win10 system …

Edit/Update: Regrettably, the multi-page-out-of-control scrolling still happens, once it starts I need to close and re-open Writer to get back to the line-wise scrolling … so, something fundamentally wrong in LO it seems … currently running 6.4.3.2.
