I'm trying to work on a document in Libreoffice and there are no up or down arrows in the vertical scroll sidebar. This makes it hard to move up or down in the document. How do I get the up and down arrows in the scroll sidebar?

15.04 fixes doesn't work with 18.04

  • Essentially, you can search for a gtk3 theme that has the little arrows present by default, or, if possible, edit your theme's existing gtk-widgets.css to change -GtkScrollbar-has-backward-stepper: false; and -GtkScrollbar-has-forward-stepper: false; to true – DK Bose Apr 29 '18 at 3:54
  • Didn't help. Older version, not 18.04 – casawyer Apr 29 '18 at 4:50
  • Also can't use GTK themes in 18.04 at this point. – casawyer Apr 29 '18 at 4:50
  • As a short term fix, you can grab the scroll bar slider and move it up and down. For smaller movements use PageUp and PageDown keys. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Apr 29 '18 at 19:37
