[Solved] Vertical Scroll Bar Page by Page vs. Bottom/Top

Postby DaveinJapan » Tue May 30, 2017 3:15 pm

Hi all. I tried to find this info via search on this site but had no luck. I just downloaded a fresh version of OpenOffice for Mac (4.1.3), and I'm having one small problem. When I was using the previous version, I could click near the bottom of the vertical scroll bar and have the document jump to (roughly) the bottom of the doc. Same for jumping back to the top, or even the middle (I write novels so I have VERY long docs). This version seems to only scroll down one page at a time, no matter where I place the mouse pointer. Is there a way to change this? Thanks in advance for your help! Dave

As far as I know the double arrow buttons only jump down or up one page. I use the Navigator for quick movement about the structures of my documents (Chapters, sub headings, comments etc)..

There is an option in Mac to set the behavior to jump to the next page or jump to the spot that's clicked. Have you checked that setting?
