The problem is that if the last cell is longer than the screen, then scroll
to bottom might be too far, no?
Actually I just realized one thing that may be easy to change, and that
would help *a lot*: if we could make Escape lose keyboard focus and gain
'cell focus', then it would be much easier to page up/down in a notebook.
Right now page up/down scroll very fast, but only if you have selected a
whole cell and are not focused inside the cell; it's a little tricky to
reach that state with the mouse (you have to click the cell outline). But
if Esc gave you that, I think most of my scrolling gripes would go away:
- type type type...
- Want to scroll up or down? Esc.
- page up....
- read what I need
- page down...
- back to editing.
This would be fast and fluid, and would not require the mouse at all.
