This old thread was the only mention I could find of this problem ... but I still experience this behavior in LyX 2 regardless of what is open or not open at the bottom of the window (in particular, regardless of whether "View Source" is open), so there must be more to the story. Whenever the cursor enters a math mode element that is inside any kind of box (Figure caption, LyX note, etc.), via pointing device or arrow keys, the contents of the editing window are immediately scrolled to place the math mode element at the top. I am running LyX 2.0.0 on Ubuntu 11.10 x86_64. I could not find any bug reports on this topic, so I wonder if any others are having the same problem. Thomas
