        I don't know if this is a bug (though I highly doubt it's a feature) or what, but I find this behavior in XCode Playgrounds to be really annoying: whenever I start typing something (other than operator symbols, it seems) the screen scrolls up by a line, meaning the line I'm typing on moves down. It happens whenever I start to type any text that is not a symbol (except for @ and $). Which means if I'm typing a lot on a line, or just typing a lot continuously, then whatever I'm typing will scroll down off the screen in any case where I'm not a the top of that page. This might be easier to show than explain, so here's a quick video of what I'm talking about using the Enumerations Playground lab from the App Development with Swift course:

        If this is intentional behavior or something caused by my set up, then I'd really like to know how to make it stop. If it's a bug, then I guess I should submit it. However, I wanted to check in and see if it's just me. Unfortunately my Google-Fu seems to be failing me when searching to see if anyone else is having an issue like this, or perhaps it's just not widespread.

         

        FWIW, I'm running the latest Xcode 10.2.1 (10E1001) on a mid-2014 MacBook Pro 13" Retina with the latest Mojave 10.14.4.

         

        Any thoughts or advice would be most welcome. I'm pretty new here as well as to iOS development and modern coding in general, so my apologies if this is in the wrong spot or if I was unable to successfully search for the answer if it has already been addressed.

        Cheers,
        Alex

          Wow, that’s pretty crazy.  I’ve never experienced anything like that before.

          Can you post a link to that playground so that I can try out exactly what you were doing?  [The link will require moderation, but I can take care of that.]

            Can confirm. Happens very often since last major upd. And very annoying.

            It does not depend on playgrounds content. At least for me.

            But (maybe?) happens more if you are using Rendered Markup thingy. Not sure tho.
