Jumpy find

Post by ymeroz » Tue Apr 09, 2013 1:52 pm

If you are searching for a string using the Find dialog and Mellel finds it, its behavior is to scroll the text so the found string is at a certain position within the window, a bit below the top. This happens even if the found text was already within the window, perhaps even on a line where one has just been editing.

I find this undesirable. When the window jumps, I lose track of where I was, and it takes a few seconds to orient myself again. This behavior does not occur in any other programs I know.

I would like to ask that Mellel is fixed, so that Find does not cause scrolling when the found text is already visible within the window.
