#42561 assigned defect (bug)

No scrolling and selected word stays out of view when switching between Visual and Text modes

Description

The fix from #42530 (specifically 42184) doesn't seem to work properly, and it behaves inconsistently across browsers. To reproduce:

  • Uncheck "Enable full-height editor and distraction-free functionality." in the Screen options
  • using Chrome, edit a long post starting in the "Visual mode"
  • select a word that occurs at about the middle of the post content:

  • switch to "Text mode": no scrolling happens and the selected word stays out of view:

  • switch back to "Visual mode"
  • the selected word is almost completely hidden at the top of the content visible area:

Using Firefox instead, it behaves a bit better: at least the selected word is visible when switching from VIsual to text:

Hello, As far as I know, it still needs a patch before landing in the next minor.

4.9.5 beta release is planned for next Tuesday so we'll need a patch in the next few days otherwise it will be punted to 4.9.6 (which is not that bad).
