The main problem is that I'm not sure what you mean by jumping around. Does the page jump when adding material and typesetting --- or --- is there a jumping around when syncing between Source and Preview? 

E.g., when I add a TOC to a document it moves text an future pages and the page can change quite a bit. The same can be true when doing multiple compiles to include certain bibliography styles.

Good Luck,
