Hello Ipythonistas,

I want to thank you for your amazing work, and add my voice to support making scrolling smarter.  My use case is running a long computation with intermediate output that scrolls off the bottom of my browser.  It would be wonderful if the browser moved to show the bottom of cell containing active output.

Subject: [IPython-User] autoscrolling in html notebook

Hi All,

I was just wondering whether there is a trick to scroll to the bottom of the page in the html notebook. What I mean is the following: suppose that I have some code that produces a plot. The plot might very well be bigger than the screen. If I run the code, what happens is that the cursor jumps to the next cell, but that cell will be below the bottom of the browser. So, in effect, I don't see the cursor, nor the plot just created. Is there a way to make the browser scroll to the proper position? By the way, this happens in the opposite direction, too, namely, if I move up with the cursor pressing the "Up" arrow diligently, when I get to the first, cell, the browser does not move any more, even if the cursor is above the top of the visible field Cheers, Zoltán
