Using Version 188.8.131.52 on Ubuntu 13.04.
Since moving to Version 4 I’ve noticed that document scrolling works differently. If I click in the ‘unused’ area of the vertical scrollbar it moves immediately to that point in the document (e.g. on page 1 of a 10 page document, click near to bottom of scrollbar and you’re on page 9, rather than page 2) rather than by a page in the appropriate direction. This makes navigation different in LibreOffice to all other applications I use. Is there some setting to restore it to be ‘scroll by page’? It makes scrolling in a large document very difficult.
Also, the ‘line scroll’ buttons at either end of the vertical scrollbar are no longer present. Is there some way to scroll through a document (applies to Calc and Writer) a line/row at a time. I know I can do this using cursor keys, but this moves the cursor(!) I used to be able to be writing at one point in a document, then scroll - precisely - to another area using the scrollbar buttons to check what was written, then carry on entering at the cursor position (which was off-screen) I hope that makes sense … essentially it was easy to be inserting at one point, whilst viewing another point, without needing to open up a second view.
Dragging the scroll slider it is very tricky to be precise with 1000s of rows.
