Fix initial scroll position of container field

Running FileMaker Advanced for Mac version 16.3


On a layout, I have a large container field. Format: Reduce image to fit, Maintain original proportions, Alignment top left, optimize for interactive content. The container field holds a PDF in each record. In some cases, the PDF is multiple pages long, so a vertical scrollbar appears.


The problem is, when you go to a new record (e.g. with the arrow in the toolbar), the container field shows the document scrolled down a bit. So every time the user goes to an unvisited record, she has to scroll up to the top of the document. (If she leaves the record and returns, its earlier scroll position is remembered.)


I would like the field to be scrolled all the way to the top on initial view, instead of starting off partway down. Anyone know how to accomplish that? (Playing with Data Formatting in the Inspector doesn't seem to make a difference, but maybe I missed something)
