List view jumps to top of page after viewing record

Post

     I have an interesting (and annoying) problem I'm trying to fix.

      

     We are building a database with potentially thousands of records, each with a unique ID number as a part of the record name field. During the creation process of a record, things go as normal, and when I finish the record entry and go back to the list view (sorted by Name field), the list view auto jumps so that the record I just created sits at or near the bottom of the screen. This is wonderful, because I can see what ID numbers I've just entered, the records surrounding it, and what I need to enter next.

     However, when I'm just browsing the records trying to find something, if I click on a record, then go back to the list view, it ALWAYS jumps up to the top of the page, basically at record #0001.

     This is quite annoying, especially if I don't pay attention to what record ID number I was browsing. For example, if I were looking ID number 0735, go back to the list view and it dumps me at the top record 0001, it takes a long time to scroll down and find the record again.

      

     My question: Is there a way to have filemaker remember where on a list view I've scrolled to, so that when I click on a record and then go back to the list view, it remembers where I was?
