             Bug #: 46988
           Summary: VIEWING: Screen jumps when scrolling down with arrow
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: critical
          Priority: medium
         Component: Writer
        AssignedTo: libreoffice-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: jlo150 at ymail.com

When scrolling up or down through a multiple page document with up-arrow key 
or down-arrow key. The screen display jumps by multiple lines - approximately 
1/3 of the document window-height on an 1600x1200 display - when the cursor 
reaches either the top or bottom edge of the document display. So, for example 
when you reach the bottom of the screen the screen will jump up by e.g. 10 
lines bringing the cursor up by these 10 lines. Then the cursor travels down 
to the bottom causing the screen to jump up again. So you gaze has to jump up 
something like every 2 seconds if you want to keep an eye on the cursor.


Please fix this. This is broken. No other word processor or browser or document
viewer does it like this.  This makes LibreOffice Writer 100% unusable. (I mean
that. Unusable.)
