Open full view…

Auto returning to top of screen?

I really like editing events in relationship view! But I'm finding that almost every time I use the shortcut to edit Places or Characters in the grid, as soon as I hit enter it automatically scrolls back to the first event at the top of the screen. This is a huge pain, since you've got to scroll back down through possibly hundreds of events to get back to where you were. It doesn't happen when I edit in the event "inspector," but that takes much longer and seems to negate half of the usefulness of Relationship View. Any way of fixing this?

Hi, When you are editing the Places or Characters in the grid, have you selected the first event at the top of the screen? (if you have, it will be highlighted a different colour). At the moment, the relationship view will scroll to the selected event after you have edited the grid. We agree that this is not ideal, and will look into fixing the problem, however in the meantime you can either deselect all events (click somewhere on the header above the event list) or before you alter the grid, select the event by clicking on it first.

Ah, that was the case. It wasn't intuitive that I needed to highlight the event first, but knowing that that does help quite a bit in the meantime. Thanks!
