Can't enable Typewriter scrolling

I started a new project a while back, and enabled Typewriter Scrolling.

At some point–I can’t pinpoint exactly what I was doing at the time–it stopped working, and I can’t re-enable it.

The option is selectable in the menu but selecting it does nothing. I have the Preference (Preferences>Editing>Typewriter scroll line) set to “Middle of Editor”; changing this setting does nothing.

I opened an old project and Typewriter Scrolling is working in that one.

I was having this same problem and found a fix that worked for me. It turns out I was in “Page View” mode, and this function doesn’t work in that mode. If you go View–>Text Editing–>Hide Page View and click it, it works.

That’s only if you happen to be in Page View mode, as I apparently was.

Manual 16.3, Typewriter Scrolling: “The Typewriter Scrolling feature is not available in Page View, given how this feature lays out the pages in a simulacrum of the printed page, which will of course not contain any of the dummy lines added to keep the entry position in the middle of the screen.” (last paragraph)

This has happened to me when not in Page View.

Okay. Does it work now, or still broken?

Stupid question : Is your current document long enough to allow typewriter scrolling to do its thing?
