Description of the issue

Scripting inline editor appears out of place

Steps to reproduce the problem

See screenshot.
1) I have a script with 88 steps, approximately 25 show at any one time.
2) Toward the bottom is an Exit Loop If step
3) Tab on that step so that the space between the brackets is highlighted
3) Click the enter key to open the inline editor

RESULT #1: the editor opens a few steps above the step I'm actually working on

RESULT #2: upon exiting the inline editor for that step -- even on steps where the editor was aligned properly with the step -- the script scrolls up or down so that the active step is now at the bottom or top of the window; I've lost my place!

4) scroll the script so the active step is in the middle of the window.
5) Use CTRL-/ to disable the step.

RESULT #3: the script scrolls up or down so that the disabled step is now at the bottom or top of the window; I've lost my place!
