Hello!

Is ist possible to affix the cursor in OOo calc to the middle position of the (visible) table while scrolling through the table so that I can alway see the past 10, the current and next 10 values?

Windows?

Since you are wanting to view 30 consecutive rows at a time, you can simply minimise your window to show only 30 rows. It might be difficult to see 30 columns, if you wanted that also, except by changing the View/zoom 50%, but print might be rather small.

That's not hte problem I mean. Maybe my problem description was bad.

What I mean is the following:

I dont want to move the cursor but the table. Currently the cursor scrolls down to the bottom of the visible table rows and then remains a the last row if I continue scolling. Therefore I can't see the next values but only the last ones.

If you prevent the (vertical) movement of the cursor by fixing its position to (some) row in the middle of the visible table you can always see the last the current and the next rows, okay?

If by "cursor" you mean outlined [selected] cell, then Iisee no way to accomplish this. The "cursor" [arrow] will remain where placed as the screen scrolls past it using up/down arrows, or page up /down. But I can not see what you want happening. Splitting the screen does something of what you might want, but is still not really what you are asking.
