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?
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.
He's made one hub - he doesn't understand.
I figured that.
I have noticed his behavior on forums and do not have time for such annoyance.
So, again, what is the subject of the hubs that you refer? They must have very interesting subjects.
Okay, I'll bite. I have a drawing hub on another account with 454 comments. Granted it was a Squidoo transfer but still...
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.
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?
Why you seem so particular about your own attitude? Why can't you see other's mind? It is glad that you have no worries about all these things. I also do not care these things. I can adjust myself to any kind of circumstance. But, there is some difference. I try to see things with other's eyes and perspectives also. That's why I am supporting people. I hope you can understand the situation.
I know that my approach might have struck to you as being slight 'uncanny'. But I'm having a conversation on this thread with people whose histories on this website I'm a bit familiar with.
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.
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!
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.
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.

This is a suggestion for an additional feature to the option to order comments by either oldest or most recent as first-appearing.The current tool is useful for hubs with many comments, as I means people do not have to scroll through 50 or more comments to read the most recent.However, it would be...

I just wanted to share that I have had the " scroll to top" button for Chrome for some time now and I encourage everyone to have it. It saves a lot of time when viewing large files since one push and it takes you to the top of the page. It really helps simplify...

There are many wonderfully written hubs here with hundreds of comments made by visitors. When i myself want to comment on the hub i have to scroll past all these comments to get to the bottom and type my comment and then scroll an entire page up to exit the hub. Scrolling down is fine as we get to...

It would be most useful, if the "back" button would truly take us back to exactly where we were, as we were when working back and forth between hubs and the hubs listing in our account.What currently happens is, that if we have selected to sort by title, in order to search through various...

What happened to my little blue tip box I have become so attached to? I let me know how many words I had, if an image was not clear enough, and let me know when my hub was presentable and ready to publish.
