Hi all, is excellent. I use it all the time.


I have a question about Skim's behavior when refreshing a pdf file. Under El 
Capitan, when reloads a pdf, the viewing position was preserved the 
same. For example, if I was viewing the bottom of a page, the position is still 
the same.


But this changed after I upgraded the OS to macOS Sierra, which I regret. Now 
refreshing makes jump to the page top. For example, if I was viewing 
the middle of page 3, after the pdf file is changed (usually by pdflatex), changes the position to the top of page 3. On my other mac running El 
Capitan, the position does not change. It's only under Sierra that the position 
jumps to the top of a page. The version is 1.4.21 (95) on both machines.


Would there be a way to avoid the position change under Sierra?


Thank you.





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.
