I certainly agree and I do that whenever I have a really long piece  
of text. I click at the beginning of the selection or I start  
scrolling, then I go to the output, apple click where I want the  
selection to end and shift click in the synchronized place in the  
source. If all goes right, all goes right.

But for some reason, I do tend to start scrolling if the end is just  
beyond the pale.

And, since I had reported that a long time ago and, if memory serve— 
but it serves less and less these days—you told me that it worked, I  
shrugged and got into the habit of enlarging the window by hand,  
leaving a bit of room below.

And then I started using the green button!

Best regards
