patch to default to false
This property controls the behavior of left-click on a scrollbar. In previous releases, this scrolled by a page in the respective direction; in 3.10 with this property set to true, the page jumps.
1. This change makes gtk3 apps behave in a way which is confusingly unlike other common toolkits
2. This change seems very minor to people who aren't used to the the behavior either way, but is highly disruptive to people who are used to it
3. In most cases, paging is more useful than jumping anyway, because the scrollbar is a crude indicator of position.
4. With the old behavior, middle-click still gives a jump scroll for cases when people wnat it.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Can't stand this behaviour. Every time I click on the scroll bar to page down I end up near the bottom of my editor.
Apparently this setting in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini will fix this annoyance, but I haven't gotten around to testing it,
#c2 That doesn't work. I still have this bug despite adding that setting.
