Weird scrolling issue with read aloud


I recently started using scrivener 3 with MacOS Big Sur and whenever I activate read aloud using the MacOS in-built read aloud system, the document scrolls to the end, way ahead of the read aloud feature. I have confirmed that this only happens in scrivener since I tested it in other word processors and the problem did not occur. Any ideas what the issue is or if there are settings to fix this.

The problem seems to appear only in page view but not in composition mode. This is still problematic for me since I like to listen to previous chapters whilst I work.


Not saying this is necessarily the cause, but make sure you’re on the current version. There were several interface bugs on Big Sur before Scrivener 3.2.2.

I have the same issue and run Sonoma 14.3.1. and Scriv 3.3.6

frustrating. It skips ahead way down the page showing blue lines.
