Changelog not fully readable in Update popup

Bug Summary

Update changelog not easily fully readable due to scroll bug.

Steps to reproduce

In the “New version available” popup, scroll to read the changelog. When you reach the previous version from the top, or the newer version from the bottom, the scroll jumps to the top of that section, making it nearly impossible to read the last notes of a section.

Hello @rmpel -

Thank you! I passed this on to the Local engineering team.

All my best,


I noticed the same issue on Windows.

It can also be seen on the main release notes page here, which I’m assuming is simply being embedded in the app.

Is there some kind of scroll snapping being applied, or an overly aggresive ScrollSpy-like functionality? The jump seems to occur at the same time that the version number changes in the list to the left.


This was carried over (apparently) from Local 7.x.x. Annoying, and as rmpel mentions, it is sometimes just about impossible to read the bottom of longer version changelogs.
