What happened to page-down?
« on: August 24, 2023, 12:13:12 pm »
I rely on deterministic behavior of keystrokes, but I'm finding something broke that.

When I'm on the 1st line of a text file (the top line displayed is line 1), and I hit "PgDn", the top line is now line 57... IOW, it moved down in the file 56 lines.

I then hit PgDn again... and now it's on line 60!!! Just 3 lines!

This correlates with the start of a function, but I don't care about that. Why did this change? How do I get deterministic behavior back?

Sorry you don't care for this behavior.  It's easy to change.  Just go to Tools>Options, and under Editing/Cursor Movement, change "Cursor page up/down" to "Full page (maintains scroll position)".  Hope this helps.
