Kendy, Toma┼ż, Samuel, *

Need some sage guidance on a UX topic regards these two BZ issues:

https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=41063
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=95797

For some time we've had an annoying UI glitch that when manually saving
(with Ctrl+S) or when autosave runs the current canvas view is lost and
document repositions to the location of the edit cursor.

It was most noticeable when the edit cursor had been left in a paragraph
occupying a table cell.  But since the 5.0.0 release now is occurring when
edit cursor is located in common paragraphs.

With autosave on by default, and users often shortening the
interval--loosing one's position in a document being scrolled through is
annoying. 

Related, the edit View position (used when opening a document to position
the edit cursor and canvas view) that responds to a Shift+F5 is set per
document in settings.xml -- but unfortunately it can not be updated during
an edit session--only by saving, closing and reopening the document. 

For that we have a suggested enhancement to make more use of the Shift+F5
key and cycle through multiple edit Veiw locations as in this BZ issue:
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92821

But here is the rub--is there any way to hook to specific locations in the
document canvas view?  IIUC Top, Bottom, page down (from current), page up
(from current), scroll down (set number of lines), scroll up (set number of
lines) none of those require know exactly where the canvas is positioned in
the current view.

Are we able to determine an absolute position in an open document canvas to
be able to fix annoyances of tdf#41063 and tdf#95797, or to implement
something for tdf#92821?
