Script steps pane unhelpful scrolling

FileMaker Pro Advanced 14.0.4 /  Windows 7

 

In the Script Workspace, when working on "long" scripts -- i.e., longer than one screen -- I typically want to see what I'm doing in context. I want to see what's above AND what's below the step I'm editing. But really I WANT TO CONTROL THE SCROLL POSITION MYSELF. If I manually scroll the view, I want it to STAY PUT.

 

However, FileMaker insists on scrolling the view to the bottom after committing each script step. Very annoying.

 

I titled this bug "unhelpful scrolling" because I assume the designer of this "feature" was trying to somehow be helpful. But it is the opposite of helpful.
