Keep same pan position after rerendering

+2 votes
Please keep the same horizontal and vertical pan postions (absoulte scroll bar values) after automatically rerendering an PNG that is shown in the GUI.

Implementing this will save users time rescolling / panning to the place of intereist in large diagrams that have scroll bars.

This feature is the most wanted feature for me.

It's crazy to pan to the same place over and over again.
Ok, this should be fixed in last beta : https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13064071/plantuml.jar
Very few tests have been done, so feedback is welcome!
Thanks very much. It's working properly at least for now, which would save me tons of time.

Can you advise when this fix would be included in the next release?
This fix will be included in next release that will be published before mid-december. We will post a message here when this will be done.
Hi, is it possible to keep the pan position even if syntax error has been reported and then fixed?
Ok, this should be fixed in last version https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13064071/plantuml.jar
If you find other issues, do not hesitate to post here.
Thanks for your quick reply.

I have tried the new version. Everything works just as expected. I am much much more efficient now.

To make it even better, maybe we need a feature to change the pan position by simply mouse-dragging on the graph.

Anyway, thanks very much for your fantastic work.
