Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 118545] New: Page up and down function not working properly
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2011 08:58:21 GMT

             Bug #: 118545
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: Page up and down function not working properly
    Classification: Application
           Product: Word processor
           Version: version58
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 7
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: viewing

this is a bug i have noticed in many word processors, when i use the page up
and down button it never properly pages to what i can see on the screen.
inevitably i have to scroll up or down as the function will either page part of
the way or to far. 
when i bought a 24" monitor i thought this would solve the issue as i would be
able to have space to display the entire page, but the problem remains.
i can display the entire page on the screen, but the text becomes so small i
cannot read it easily.
Simply put, when i read a document, and need to page up and down, why cannot
the page button take us up and down the screen width, perhaps to ONE line off
rather than several? or consistently come to the same point on a page rather
than what seems to be a random position requiring us to scroll to read what was
skipped or to continue past what we have already read?
this is not a screen size issue as i have examined it on several and used many
different terminals over the years, both large and small. 
not a major problem, but one i am sure annoys many.

thank you.
