Song display gets stuck at the bottom in vertical scrolling
I describe a problem I have encountered for information.  I have made changes to my song library to get around it.

In vertical scrolling mode, some multi-page songs will scroll to the bottom and then not respond to pedal or mouse clicks to move back up.  They will however, move up with the mouse scroll wheel and once the song is moved off the bottom it will once again respond to the pedal/mouse click.

My set up is Windows 10, with Display Mode set to Portrait, Vertical Scrolling and Scale Mode Fit Width.  I have a 20" 4:3 monitor oriented in portrait. I use a BlueTooth page turner with the left pedal set to "Go to Previous Page" and the right to "Scroll Down or Turn Page if at Bottom", with 50% scrolls.

On my 4:3 display in Fit Width, typically a full page of music is just a little taller than will fit the height of the screen and this seems to be related to the problem.

Even when the song is just one page and it is just a little taller than will fit on the screen, it will scroll down that last little bit to the bottom with a pedal press but it will not come back up again.  This is a trivial problem as all that happens is a bit of the song title can't be seen.  I only mention this as it may be a clue which helps diagnose the more serious multi-page problem.

With a multi-page song, when the last page is just a little taller than the screen, scrolling down to the bottom will cause the same behaviour and will not go back up with pedal or mouse clicks, which is a big nuisance when you need to repeat the song. As I mentioned, it will move up with the scroll wheel and once off the bottom the pedal/mouse up will then work again.

This problem only occurs on a small number of songs.  Other songs which seem to be very similar in size work perfectly well.

This problem was such a nuisance to me I have converted all the multi-page songs in my library into single (tall) pages, which work perfectly well in vertical scrolling.
