Prevent Writer from jumping to cursor position on save


I’m using LibreOffice 6.3.32 (Build ID: 1:6.3.3-0ubuntu0.19.10.1).

I’ve noticed that when working with a document in Writer, the view will jump to wherever the cursor is every time I save the document, which can be quite inconvenient.

Is there any way to turn this off?

Can’t confirm this behavior on Ubuntu 19.10 and LibreOffice - the view is unchanged on “Save” (regardless of clicking Save icon or using menu File -> Save or shortcut STRG+S). On File-> Open cursor is on beginning of first paragraph).

This doesn’t happen if you save the document in Microsoft Word format. At least this is my experience.

… while it is absolutely not recommended to use foreign formats by default.

You’re right - this seems to be specific to the document I was working on. I also can’t replicate it on other documents.
