Page up/down don't work in new live preview editor

Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS

Obsidian 0.13.14

Page up/down in the new WYSIWYG editor is not working correctly for me. It only moves the page by 3-4 lines rather than a whole page. And it frequently gets “stuck” doing even that - it moves by 3-4 lines but then immediately reverts back.

Steps to reproduce

  1. create a new note with a lot of text. It should span multiple pages.
  2. Go to the bottom of the note and press the page up hotkey 2 times
  3. Go to the top of the note and press the page down hotkey 2 times

Expected result

Basically, I expect standard page up/down behavior.

In step 2, I expect the page to scroll up one page view every single time that I press page up.

In step 3, I expect the page to scroll down one page view every single time that I press page down.

Actual result

In step 2, after pressing page up the 2nd time, the page view goes back DOWN to the bottom of the document instead of continuing to scroll up.

In step 3, after pressing page down the 2nd time, the page view goes to the very bottom of the document, instead of continuing to go down page by page.

Steps to reproduce


(The most clear evidence, but it is so common if you have somewhat big notes)

  1. Make a file with a lot of new lines, then make a markdown thing (separator ( ___ ) bugging more than others, but sometimes others do this too) and place it in the middle of the file so that it would be beyond screen, and make sure there are some new lines behind
  2. Turn on Vim mode
  3. In the file, in command mode just hold j key (to go down) and, when it “collide” with this markdown thing it become typing jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj.

This could be also with k .

Navigation buttons

Page up and Page down.
They are also bugging at markdown syntax, but they just teleport you back.

Expected result

Nothing, just navigation

Actual result

Inserting navigation commands or going back.
