Very Simple, Small Request: automatically scroll down to keep text at eye level

I’m really not sure what the technical term for this is, and I apologize if this request has already been made in these forums. It’s quite a simple and practical request, though.
When I use Microsoft Word, once I have typed enough that my block of text has reached a certain point just below the middle of the screen, the page automatically scrolls downward to expose the remaining empty space on my current page, or the top of the following blank page. This ensures that the text I’m typing never ends up all the way at the bottom of my screen.
It bothers me that Scriv doesn’t do this. I find it distracting and I usually end up stopping the writing to hit enter a bunch of times. I mean, I know it’s a luxury that I don’t have to change out my paper and manually align everything like on a typewriter, but this one thing seems like it would improve the Scriv experience a lot with minimal programming effort. When I’m using my laptop, which is what I use most of the time, it gets to the point where my own hands on the keyboard are in the way of my seeing the words I’m typing, after I have typed enough to get close to the bottom of the screen. I wish I didn’t have to stop the flow of things to give myself a fresh space to write in.
Thanks for taking suggestions. Mighty brave of you. :slight_smile:

It already exists. In Settings (or whatever it’s called in the Windows version) under Edit you can enable ‘typewriter scrolling’ and choose which screen level you want.

Lunk is right. But as OP writes

, I think it is worth adding that Typewriter Scrolling in Scrivener doesn’t work in Page View.

Oh, thanks you two! So many settings on this software, I think I’ve barely scratched the surface.

Not seeing it under Edit guys. Anybody know where to find it on PC? It’s elusive.

Here we go! Thanks again, ya’ll.

For me it’s the other way around - I can’t figure out how to turn it off… In composition mode, that is. It works fine when I am in the editor. Anyone knows how to do it? I use Windows.

The menu, by the way, is Format->Options->Typewriter Scrolling. The keyboard shortcut shown next to that menu item is what you need to use in Composition mode, which is set and un-set to typewriter scrolling independently from the standard Scrivener window.
