Scrolling Down in 3.95v

Postby AlanStewart » Wed Jun 14, 2006 5:53 pm

I've noticed something unusual in Zeus 3.95v. When I'm scrolling down with the Down Arrow, when it gets to the last full line and I hit Down one more time, the file does indeed scroll up, but by two lines instead of one. The cursor stays on the line it should (the next one down) but now there's another line to get to before scrolling again. The result is a little bit jerky of a scrolling since it now scrolls two lines for every two Down Arrows instead of 1 for 1.

I did check this out at home where I have 3.95u and it behaves normally there.

Otherwise, things seem to be behaving quite nicely!

As you may have noticed, Zeus by design always keeps the cursor on the screen. It does this by checking the cursor every time it moved.

So what I think you are seeing is the scroll down action hitting the bottom of the page resulting in first line scroll, then the cursor checking code finding part of the cursor is off the screen, resulting in the second line of scroll.

The difference you are seeing between the two version is recently the cursor checking code was change to make sure the entire cursor is on the screen.

The scrolling should be a little smother with this latest Zeus patch:
