[Solved] LO: arrow buttons scroll sheet and don't move focus

Previously, when I used the UP / DOWN / LEFT / RIGHT arrows, the in-focus cell moved. So, if cell G6 was in-focus, pressing DOWN three times moved the focus to G9.

Now, if cell G6 is in-focus and I press the DOWN arrow three times, the focus stays on G6 and the whole visible sheet scrolls three rows.

I guess it is a control I have inadvertently toggled but I cannot find which. Help and the manual give no hint and resetting the profile doesn't work its usual magic.

LO 7.0.5.2.

Perhaps - if your keyboard has it - you've accidentally toggled Scroll Lock. The behaviour suggests this may be the case.

Thanks - that solved it.

It still worked properly in AOO so I didn't think it could be the keyboard :crazy:

Not being able to scroll-lock the cell cursor was one of the Excel features I was missing badly when switching from Windows to Linux (thus Excel to Calc) 20 years ago.
