Notebook scrolling as I select

halcho

When I select text in a notebook cell the whole notebook scrolls up as a select. This happens when I use the mouse wheel and with shift+arrow key. It varies by cell - happens in some cells, but not other cells within the same notebook. When I refresh the page it stops happening. I'm not sure what triggers it but it is extremely annoying because it happens so often. I can't find any fix for this and none of my colleagues working in the same enviro have this issue. 

Plz help!

Hi @halcho 

Greetings!

Can you please check if this issue is happening with a specific Browser? If you are on Chrome, you can test with Firefox. Also, you can check the installed extensions on your Browser, one of the Browser extensions can cause this issue. 

Try Disabling all extensions and check the behavior

Let us know if that helps.

I am using Chrome, but also happens with Edge. Also I figured out the trigger! After I use 'Change All Occurrences' the issue is happening. See screenshot. I imagine this is a bug with databricks.

Hi, I'm also having this same issue. I tried using Safari which has no extensions and it's exactly what's described; some cells start scrolling as I highlight the content. When I refresh it goes away but then it comes back again. Not sure if it's a coincidence but I only started noticing after the new cell UI was released. That said I tried all combinations of config (new & old cell / charts / result table UI) and nothing is helping. 

Same here. I am using Safari and page starts scrolling up upon selection of moving cursor after cmd+D

@halcho yes you're right! I haven't been using "Change all occurrences" but can also replicate when I use CMD+D shortcut to select multiple instances of any text, which is basically the same thing.

@Kaniz @AlliaKhosla now that we have a consistent way of replicating, can you please help out here? This is a critical tool for my work and the bug's been very interruptive. I can also engage my workplace (I'd be surprised if we didn't have existing corporate collaboration) if it's going to help prioritise the fix. Also would appreciate if you could let me know if there are any workarounds in the meantime.

I'm relieved to know that I'm not the only one experiencing this issue.

Please, address this as soon as possible. It's significantly impacting my productivity.
