LOW PRIORITY: Arrow keys scroll editor page


Arrow keys cause the entire page to jump around, making the editor very difficult to use. It seems like the left arrow scrolls the current block to the top of the page, (EDIT: the right arrow does not scroll it down – I was confusing other Gutenberg scrolling) and the right arrow scrolls it down. This makes it super hard to edit the page.

Turns out there is a simple workaround: edit it while in tablet mode, or some other mode than 100% width. The problem entirely goes away, and all is well if you do that. So this is probably not worth looking into.

Step-by-step reproduction instructions:

  1. Have a page whose length is longer than the browser window.
  2. Click on some block in the middle of the page.
  3. Press the left or right arrow key.
