V4.0 On Mac OS X small vertical scroller does not scroller is flaky

Hello,

I just downloaded LO and have found a small issue.  Sliders/scrollers especially small sized will not scroll home easily using the sidebar. Sometimes the only way is to use the mouse wheel over the list to make them scroll.

Attached is an image of one example. Notice vertical slide scrollbar is at the bottom.  Using the mouse I cannot grab it to slide upward. I am using Mac OS X Mountain Lion. Same problem with horizontal sliders especially the spreadsheets.

Using the mouse "wheel" vertically or horizontally works perfectly. Can this be corrected?

Hi, Tom,

Subscribed or not, the OP is correct.  Vertical slider operation is
broken in Mountain Lion.  Pisses me off.

This is one of many known bugs affecting LibreOffice on OSX, and
unfortunately has been around for quite a while now, without any visible
sign of a fix in the near future, for lack of resources, i.e. enough Mac
developers working on the project.

If you want to complain, or add your thoughts, please do so :

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=46271


And yes, it is really, really, annoying.

Hi :)
Please try to make sure wyattbiker is included in the CC field to all replies in this thread. 


Is there a bug-report about this already?  If not it might be good to post one before the big bug-fest on the 20th June. 

Regards from

Tom :)

Hi :)
This answer seemed a tad more useful!  Yes there is a bug report and Alex gives the clickable link to it.

Don't know, and pretty much don't care anymore, Tom.

Another reason I'm trying Scrivener, looking for a replacement for LO.

Re: V4.0 On Mac OS X small vertical scroller does not scroller is flaky

Just as a suggestion.

LibreOffice should convert to using normal forums. Lists confuse people and dont want to get every single post.

OpenOffice (http://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/) has great and easy to use forums.

Thanks!

Lists confuse the folks who've never learned how to use them.  I use the
gmane interface and read the lists as if the list was a newsgroup.
That's my preferred way.

LO offers the lists, gmane for newsgroup software, and forums via the
Nabble interface.

If you were at the LO Home page, and clicked on Get Help, you would have
been sent here:

http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/

That lists all the help options available.

Scroll down to the Nabble entry, and you end up here:

http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/nabble-mailing-list-interface/

This is a forum style interface for the mailing lists.

IMO, LO gives the user far more options for finding a preferred method
of obtaining help than any other place I've been.  And the same for
printed documentation.

FWIW, having used all three, lists, newsgroups, and forums, IMO forums
are by far the most poorly organized method unless they offer a threaded
view as the Nabble interface can do.

Re: V4.0 On Mac OS X small vertical scroller does not scroller is flaky

Hi :)
I was trying to help get the nomail version so that no email would be delivered to the person's email account.  That way he would be able to use Nabble as though it really was a forum without getting tons of irrelevant emails.  Sadly i think i misinterpreted what the "nomail" option does. 

Forums are on the cards but as an addition to the lists.  Then people can choose which method they prefer.  There already is something called "AskLO" which is a modern re-imagining of what forums could be. 
Regards from
Tom :)

Also, for those that prefer the Nabble interface, the Apache OpenOffice mail lists on Nabble are also available.    Able to search for and follow topics for both projects with common set of tools.
