[OS X TeX] Page scrolling in TeXSshop

I was under the impression that the page scrolling issue in TeXShop  
had been solved, namely that, in Multiple Page mode:

- Page-Up and Page-Down (or Fn-UpArrow and Fn-DownArrow on a  
PowerBook) scrolled up and down one screen, respectively.

- Cmd-LeftArrow and Cmd-RightArrow (or the corresponding buttons in  
the Preview window toolbar) moved to exactly the same position  
(vertically and horizontally) in the previous and next pages,  

Alas, I'm realizing that the second is no longer true: using Cmd- 
LeftArrow and Cmd-RightArrow moves to the top of the previous and  
next pages, respectively. In other words, the horizontal position in  
the page is preserved, but not the vertical one.

Some may consider it minor, but it's very annoying when you use it  
daily. I thought this had been evoked and solved already. Is this a  
regression in the latest versions? Or am I mistaken and the issue  
that had been evoked already was the position when refreshing the  
preview after a typeset, not the position when moving up or down one  

Or maybe this issue is atypical and not affecting most users? I am  
facing it because I usually have the input and preview windows side- 
by-side laterally on a 17" screen, each window taking about half the  
width of the screen. Willing to play nice to my eyes, I use 200%  
magnification in the preview window, and the placement of the page in  
this window is set such that the margins are hidden outside the  
window, with the text filling in most of the window. Screenshot at  
scrolling.png-zip.zip>. It's not nice to have to scroll vertically  
manually every time you switch to another page, so that the upper  
margin moves outside the window.

And Single Page mode doesn't fit well with a document you're also  
planning to read continuously.
