Scrollbar position jumping in the Appearance->Editor newcontent textarea
|Reported by:||Giant Slayer||Owned by:|
As I am editing code in the Appearance Editor main textarea called newcontent, the scrollbar slider will jump upward to a new position moving the current line being edited down.
On a vista machine using ie8 with wp3.0.1 and the 2010 theme, a single character stroke will move the scrollbar up 3 lines.
On an xp machine using ie8 with wp3.0.1 and a custom theme, a single character stroke will move the scrollbar up 8 lines. Ocasionally the scrollbar will only move 1 line and every keystroke will bring the down. Pasting text can and often does bring the line being edited below the visible area of the textarea.
It is very frustrating when it jumps around like this.
