Lo Basic line number bug?

A macro over 1000 lines causes scroll glitch. (at least for me)

Test procedure:

  1. Start LO and open the BASIC editor (e.g. via macro editing from within a Calc spreadsheet)
  2. Under the View menu, activate the line number display
  3. Open (or create) a long (Over 1100 lines of code) BASIC macro file in the BASIC editor
  4. Click on line 1
  5. Scroll down past line 999
    Once you get to line 998 it starts back at line 1
  6. Click on line 500
  7. Scroll down past line 999
    Once you get to line 998, it starts back at line 500

Is there a fix other than turning off line numbers or making shorter macros? How do I report this if it is a bug?


If you use the arrow down or page down or scroll bar it works correctly. Only the mouse wheel acts this way. See also this post → How can I get the line number column in the Basic IDE to work?

For bugs use Bugzilla to check if reported already and if not report there → Bugzilla
