I have a kendo editor control which is used to edit text containing <br> tags for newlines.  The text is long, causing the editor to show a scroll bar.  To preserve compatibility with existing data, I have overridden the newline command to insert <br> tags instead of paragraphs:

      $("#txtEditor").kendoEditor({
        tools: [
          { name: "insertLineBreak", shift: false },
        ]
      });

This works fine, except that when I do this and insert a new line near the top, now the editor scrolls to the end of the text block, which makes the scroll bar jump down.  Is there any way to avoid this happening?

I am using Kendo UI Complete v2013.3.1119 and the JQuery version it came with, Windows 7, tested in Firefox 27.  I can replicate this in the demo on the Kendo site as well by inserting some text and using shift+enter to insert some new lines.

Hi Dominic,

The observed behavior is by design - when a new paragraph or line break is inserted, the Editor automatically scrolls to the next sibling. It seems that in your case you have very long chunks of text, which are higher than the Editor's content area.

Avoiding this issue without breaking other required functionality (e.g. scrolling down when you press Enter at the end of the document) is currently not possible. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
