Thank you for explaining the scenario you have. Indeed, a way for programmatic scrolling would be needed in order to accomplish the desired result and at this point I am afraid there isn't any other approach I could suggest. Please cast your vote for the mentioned in this thread feature request and also if you're following the item, you will receive notifications when there is any progress on it.
In addition, I have raised the feature priority per your request.
Let me know if I can help with anything else.
Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans?
Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed?
