[Solved] Arrow keys move page instead of changing cells

Postby Ripcord » Fri Feb 21, 2020 3:08 am

I've been using LibreOffice Calc for a month or so after switching from the OpenOffice - Today my arrow keys no longer cause the highlight (cursor?) to jump from cell to cell - instead the highlighted cell stays the same but the sheet view moves in the direction of the arrow. I tried a "repair" in control panel which did not fix the problem. Is this a bug or did I inadvertently change a setting, and if so how might I reset it?

I did a bit of experimenting and found that the tab key will move the cursor to the right, shift + tab will move it left, and of course enter moves it down. Haven't figured out how to make it go up except with the mouse. If I have to I'll do a reinstall but I wanted to ask here first.

Thank you David, That was it. Until just now I didn't know what scroll lock was, and now I feel silly. (What is scroll lock? LOL)
