Description Kevin L. Mitchell 2019-03-07 19:07:02 UTC
Description of problem:

The spreadsheet component of LibreOffice has started acting up while scrolling with the mouse wheel.  Scrolling up works fine, scrolling down oddly seems to try to partially scroll up.  I don't know about other LibreOffice components, but I know this behavior is not occurring with other desktop components with scrolling, such as Emacs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a spreadsheet
2. Scroll down using the mouse scrollwheel or trackpad guesture

Actual results:

Scrolls down, but can also scroll up

Expected results:

Scroll down

Is this a fresh install where it has never been seen to work, or a Fedora 29 that has been installed for a while and has now spontaneously started to exhibit this ? I wonder if any other gtk3-using application has the problem. How about evince, does that show any problem ?

Comment 2 Kevin L. Mitchell 2019-03-08 14:35:58 UTC
This is an OS that's been installed for a long time, and updated to Fedora 29, but this is the first that I've noticed the unusual scrolling behavior.  Evince does not exhibit the same odd behavior.

Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2019-03-08 14:51:58 UTC
I can't think why LibreOffice might be uniquely affected. Its definitely not a common problem. I assume the system isn't under super high load ? And I assume that logging out and back in makes no difference ?

Comment 4 Kevin L. Mitchell 2019-03-08 15:00:55 UTC
Correct on both counts.

Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2019-03-11 13:43:22 UTC
X or wayland ?, not that I can see what difference it would make.
