lock book view & code view windows into synch

is this on the to-do list already ?

I'd like to be able to change view & not have to scroll the new window back or forward to where the previous view cursor was

or in split view to have the windows scroll in synch - makes it easier to see the impact of any code change

That would be huge time saver. Another time saver I would like to see is he ability to set the zoom factor once for each view that would remain the same for all files within the book and all books for that session.

I second both of these suggestions. The jumping in split view drives me crazy and occasionally causes me to accidentally move or delete chunks of code or text when I forget that the cursor won't actually be where I click.

Although it would be nice, I think it is very hard to do with the framework in use. A small change could lead to great changes later in the document, so when you switch the document has to be 'recreated' in a fashion.

maybe the split view synch would be hard but the situation ( after find - replace processing) where code view defaults to top of file & book view defaults to bottom of same file is crazy. esp as you can go click an earlier book view, then return to the annoying one & it will then have shifted its default back to top

It wouldn't have to full time sync. It would be OK to find where you want to be in one view, then click a sync button and have the other view match up.

That ought to be a piece of cake he said as the pie hit him in the face!
