I have had several reports about problems in automatic scrolling in Sierra. It 
looks like PDFKit has a bug there, when we tell it to scroll to some position 
it often does not do that. I have reported a bug about this already, but it 
looks to be a more general problem than I thought at first. Unfortunately there 
is nothing we can do about this, Apple needs to fix this in PDFKit.
