Title: Scrolling position
Status: Verified Type: Code_Defect
Severity: Minor Priority: High

Your plugin is exactly what I was looking for. Great job! I have two things that might imporive user experience though:

1) You have to press refresh to refresh the page. Auto-Refresh would be great so it shows file changes directly without the need to press the button (maybe let the user define a period of time after the autorefresh kicks in, like maybe 5 seconds)

2) After you hit refresh, the page is reloaded but is always at the top of the page. It would be great if the page would stay at the position where it was before the refresh (this in fact is way more import than 1.)

Cheers Anton

You're right, Anton.

I’d been thinking about both these issues already, but since nobody was complaining (and I'm not using it much at the moment), priority was rather low. :-)

Since your ticket was actually two in one, I've separated out the autorefresh to a new ticket, [20d1203257].

I have no idea how to restore the scrolling position, however. I'll see if there's an interface which allows this...

I didn't know, that we have to complain to feature requests. I just thought, well, somebody already mentioned it, then I don't have to do it again. But okay then: I also am VERY MUCH interested into these features.

@Rog: you don’t need to complain when there’s already a ticket reporting the issue. My point was that nobody had filed a ticket yet, so the priority wasn’t very high. :-)

Fixed in v1.2.0.0.

The scrolling position being retained by clicking on "Refresh" doesn't seem to work correctly on my machine with version 1.2.1. It also isn't retained when the window is automatically refreshed on an edit.

Like, with the following text if the "HTML preview" window has scrollbars:
<table cellpadding="3" border="1">
		<th>First Name</th>
		<th>Last Name</th>		

My OS is Windows XP SP3 with all the latest updates.

Thanks for the example!

The plugin also fails to restore its scrolling position on my machine. I’ll take a look at it as soon as I have some time.
