Why can't we have instant scrolling

My Topics, My Posts, My Tags, etc is a most excellent approach to sorting one's priorities, much better than in many if not most other such forums

But there are still a few glitches you might address in your editing routine, eg, the lack of instant scroll bar

Though I realize how difficult to alter purchased software so I will understand if you can't

Dale: They don't use purchased software. The hamsters write their own code.

Good one Joe but that doesn't explain why some editing features of a2k are most excellent

@Joe Nation,
dalehileman,

What do you mean by "instant scrolling?"

Describe what you are looking for.

If you mean you want a way to quickly scroll to the top or the bottom of the page, we have that. Look at the very upper and lower right hand corners of the browser window next to the scroll bar. You'll see a green triangle. The one with the triangle pointing upward takes you to the top of the page. The one with the triangle pointing downward takes you to the bottom of the page. Every page has those.

The instant appearance of a scroll bar when a discussion or posting window is accessed , eg, by REPLY OR EDIT

That you misunderstood owes probably to my limited vocabulary in this realm if not my advanced age and incipient Alz's and if so I apologize

Of the page yes, But, but I'm concerned about the smaller rectngular window within, where you compose your OP or reply to another's

In the posting response window a scroll bar sometimes appears for some mysterious reason toward the end of one's posting but I am hoping to see it much earlier

You forgot QUOTE. It is especially inconvenient when you are trying to isolate parts of a long quote to respond to. I know we had that ability until recently.

I don't use QUOTE often but I can't remember a time when the other windows had an instant scroll bar

@dalehileman,
You might (heh heh) scroll up and see just how often you do use QUOTE, and how often you have isolated segments of those quotes to customize your reply. Fortunately, we do have a scroll bar when reading posts.

Thanks Rog but I don't do it that, instead I highlight, copy, paste

@dalehileman,
Sounds like this is the same thing you've been asking about for the past few months since you started posting here.

After some rumination I now believe Rog what you meant by that. Sometimes when the BB Code is missing might have to scroll up there to restore it

But of course I was discussing the absence of the scroll bar for the posting window itself
Or did I miss the point once more
You have to forgive an old guy with fleeting recollection and growing Alz's

I'm flattered by your constant attention, But, but you're by no means required to follow my postings so religiously nor even read them for that matter, I don't mind

@dalehileman,
I do it for the entertainment value when I have insomnia and need something to bore me to sleep.

It works quite effectively, so please don't stop posting about it repeatedly.
