I had no idea that setting the "Display Format" to "Single Page"  
avoiding this jumping problem. Maybe this has been mentioned before,  
but it was news to me and it has saved me a ton of eye strain. I used  
to use "MultiPage" with a full page in view so that it would not  
"jump" and now I can set the magnification to higher value and not  
have the page jumping to the top with each typeset.

I still hope that Dick gets this fixed since I prefer the "MultiPage"  
view, but now it is not as important as it used to be. :-)

Thank you!
