Steps to reproduce
- Enter preview mode
- Open a file that is long enough to cause vertical scroll (you must be in preview mode before opening the file)
- Scroll to the bottom of the file
- Switch to edit mode
I enter edit mode in the section of the file that I am currently viewing.
The editor scrolls to the top of the file, causing me to lose my place and have to scroll back down to the part of the file I was trying to edit.

Interestingly, this only happens the first time that I switch to edit mode in a file. If I am in preview, open a file, switch to edit mode, switch to preview, scroll down, then switch to edit again, I get the expected behavior the second time (the editor opens at the part of the file I’m viewing instead of scrolling to the top).
I found found two potential duplicate bug reports for this, but both were dismissed as being caused by plugins or third party themes. However, I was able to reproduce this in the sandbox vault without changing any settings.
