caret/mouse cursor should follow navigation in editor

I have been using Eggplant for about 2 weeks now and I still do this:

In the editor:
<PAGEDOWN><PAGEDOWN><PAGEDOWN>
{ah - there's the line I want!}
<DOWNARROW>...
{ahhhhh! I'm back up three pages and typing in the wrong spot!}

Please make the editor's cursor or caret (whatever you call it) follow my pageup/pagedown navigations.

    The script editor uses the standard Macintosh text editor so we are a little reluctant to change it's behvaior.

    However, if you want the cursor to follow your navigation just hold down CTRL and it will go with your scrolling.

    I myself have been bitten by that behavior. I'll look and see if there is a way to make that the default.
  • Thank you. I will try and get into the CTRL habit.
    I agree that changing behavior in this case is probably not good.
