Remember Scroll Position of Blueprint List-View in BP book-window

Post by ichVII »

TL;DR
Remember scroll position in a bp book while opening a blueprint.

What ?
When you have a large blueprint book, you scroll down in it, open a blueprint and then close that blueprint again, you are back at the start of the book. I would like to be at the exact place I was before.
Why ?
Because it can be really hard to find back to the page you just opened. Vanilla supports 1000 blueprints in a book, so this problem is not restricted to mods. If you want to actually work with large blueprint books, this feature would be very welcome.

And usually, when I take a closer look at a side of a real book I do not immediatley go back to the first page afterwards. But maybe that's just me.

PS:This refers to the stable version 0.17.79. I am not aware, if this is still the case in 0.18.15.

Edit: It exists in 0.18.15 and I am reffering to scrolling in the blueprint book window, not shift+scrolling while holding the book in hand. That is why i refered to "large blueprint book", as the scroll bar only shows up for a large blueprint book.

I checked in 0.18 and if you take the blueprint book from your inventory or your hotbar it remembers the last used blueprint. When you take it from the blueprint library it doesn't but changes the icon regardless. I would consider this a bug and reported it: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=82749

You did not understand me correctly. The issue is present in 0.18.15. If you have a large blueprint book and you scroll down in it, then open a blueprint by left-clicking it and close it again by e.g. Esc, the blueprint book window is scrolled back to the top. This has nothing to do with the active blueprint.

oh ok, sorry. Now I get it. Took me quite a while to make a blueprint book that was large enough to even get the scroll bar :lol:

I think it would be better if the blueprint book wouldn't remember your latest position though but just automatically scrolls to the active blueprint when opened.

I am not referring to closing the book and then reopening it. Then I agree with you. I am just referring to opening a blueprint in the book and then closing that blueprint. This reopens the book immediatley and I think in this case it should keep track of where you scrolled.
