       If you're referring to when the computer seems to have a mind of its
own & takes off scrolling down the page,
            then this is a problem with these new machines - there is
nothing that can be done other than waiting for it to stop;
            then just get back to where you were & start again.

       BTW - I too grew tired of MSFT's continual crashes  ;-)

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Hourglass/Pause When Scrolling in LO Writer

I'm running Windows 7 Pro on a 5.5 year old Dell XPS 16.  Just to put this
context:  For years, I continued to use MS Word from Office 2000.  Then, it
started crashing.  I switched to Open Office.  Worked for awhile; then it
started crashing.  Tried a number of fixes, none of which worked.  Switched
to LO Writer.  It doesn't crash, but it constantly gives me an
hourglass/pause when I use the vertical bar to move up or down a page.  Odd
thing is that I never have the problem with spreadsheets; only with word
processors.  Any ideas what might be causing LO to pause when scrolling?  (I
should state that these are just text docs, no heavy graphics.)
