In a recent twitter conversion a person had a complaint that Notes didn't have "Live Scrolling" in email.

Live Scrolling is where you take the scroll bar and dragging it instantly updates your view.

His comment was that this is just "expected behavior" in a modern application. I checked various programs (Apple Mail, File Explorers, etc) and did find live scrolling to be commonplace. I also checked iNotes, Full and Lite, and there was no live scrolling there either

Lotus Notes should add Live scrolling to at least the mail views. It would be nice if customer Databases could use it as well.

I think that any feature that improves the UI experience of the user is a good feature to add.

In 8.5 you can change your preferences to "show all documents as a scrollable list" instead of "one page at a time'

Unless you are using a much older version, it is already there.

You're correct that that is an option in iNotes. When I did my quick iNotes test that didn't work for me. I might have been on an old tempalte, but it does appear that "live scrolling" is in iNotes Full mode.

But this idea is really more about the Notes Client. There is no live scrolling in the notes client that I can find.

You've always been able to scroll through a view in the Notes client, so what on Earth are you talking about?
