Scroll Too Much

I am using MD primarily on Ubuntu 9.04 (problem also occurred on 8.10). It does not happen on Windows XP (use it at work) or on Mac OS X 10.5.7 (Other home computer).

When I click the triangle at the top or bottom of the scroll bar, it doesn't just scroll one or two lines, it scrolls the entire register. On my checking accounts this is a long way and there seems to be no way to interrupt the process. Also, when clicking inside the scroll bar, sometimes it only goes up or down one page, but most of the time it scrolls all the way to the point in the scroll bar where I clicked. Again, this can be quite time consuming.

    Hi Dan

    I am running Moneydance 2008r3 (build 631) on ubuntu 9.04 and am not experiencing the problem you describe. Clicking on the arrow of the vertical scroll bar moves the transaction register up or down by one transaction. What version of Java are you using (type java -version at the shell to find this out)? I am running the latest java from sun, version 1.6.0_13, and have been very happy with it. If you want to install it from Synaptic the the package name is "sun-java6-jre".

    Thanks for the tip. I replaced OpenJDK JRE with Sun Java JRE and the problem went away.

    Thanks again,
