    We could really use a "Back to top" button. On some hubs it takes forever to scroll back up to the top to get to the black bar where we can change screens. Having a "Back to top" button, or keeping the black bar visible at all times, would be great for saving time.

      Would you please give us an example what kind of hubs are these? smile

        Self-explanatory. If it "takes forever" it is a long hub with many comments.

          I was wondering what kind of hubs generate so many comments that it "takes forever"  to scroll up to the top. smile

          He's made one hub - he doesn't understand.

            I figured that. smile 

            I have noticed his behavior on forums and do not have time for such annoyance.

              I sincerely hope I'm not going to be a careful custodian of 2,000 or 3,000 comments on subjects that I'm not willing to disclose, ever. smile

          So, again, what is the subject of the hubs that you refer? They must have very interesting subjects. smile

            Okay, I'll bite. I have a drawing hub on another account with 454 comments. Granted it was a Squidoo transfer but still...

              Do you need the link?

                So, as someone who is so familiar with HP, you surely realise we are not supposed to post gratuitous links to our own hubs in the forums?

                Edit: No, I don't need the link. I have it, thank you.

          Why? There are thousands of hubs that run lengthy when you get more than 20 or 50 or even 100 comments. And even without comments, there are lengthy hubs of above 2000 words in many cases. All these need the remedy of installing a "back to top" button.
          Or, as per suggestion of Phyllis, the black bar on top should be a sliding bar that can move along with the pages while scrolling so as to be accessible as and when needed.
          I strongly support Phyllis Doyle in this case.

            If it "takes forever"...    I wanted to know what subject is so interesting to engage and generate so many 'unending' comments. smile

            So, do you have any idea?

              For example, you can visit hubs of billybuc which attract more than 100 comments and you will learn what kind of hubs they are.

                Thank you for the information. Much appreciated. But a 100 comments, or even 200 comments doesn't sound like to be 'unending' to scroll up or down. What are your thoughts on this matter?

                  It depends upon your attitude and adjustment with circumstances.

                    Nice. I've seen people engage with hubs that had more than 2000, or even 3000 comments in total, when they finally ended. They never complained.

                      If you want a link to those hubs I can give you the link. So, do you want the link?

            Thanks, Venkatachari. If the bar was frozen at the top we could change screens without any scrolling.

        Use the Ctrl + up arrow or the Ctrl + Home keys. You can also use the pageup key by holding it down. It will advance in increments to the top. Even though this is not an HP fix I hope it helps.

          We can keep adjusting with any kind of glitches or problems. But, suggesting some improvements is always a good thing.

          Thanks, Tim. I will try those options.

        I totally agree Phyllis.

        Even better would be anchor code to highlight key sections at the top so people don't have to scroll all the way down!

          Yes I agree that would be a good 'add' but I'm not going to 'hold my breath' waiting smile

        You can use CTRL-Home to get to the top quickly.  CTRL-End takes you to the bottom.

        The one button we have takes you to bottom and then from bottom of questions to the top; that helps a lot.

        1. Phyllis Doyle profile image95
          Phyllis Doyleposted 3 years agoin reply to this

          Yes, it does. If that was on hubs it would be nice.

      Being able to click on different section titles and quickly navigate the page is a wonderful idea. This  could not only increase the readability of the articles but also help to enforce uniformed structure across hubs. This could also be a drawback however, it depends on how you choose to look at it.

      Press "Home" to instantly go to the top, "End" to go to the bottom and "Page Up"/"Page Dn" to, uh, page up and down.

        Thanks unnamedHarald - that works great.  smile
