When I write a post in SO, I use to watch the markdown preview very often. It is a bless that it is updated in real time.

However, when my post is long, I have to scroll down the page to look at at the markdown preview, then scroll up to fix things in the edit. This happens especially to long posts because when I correct something at the end, the preview portion that interrests me is out of sight.

So I would like to suggest a Synced vertical scrollbar in the markdown preview.

The idea is to decide which portion of my post I want to see in it. Additionally, having both markview edit and preview panes synced when I edit my post should help a lot.

Have you seen this? –  Shadow Wizard Feb 20 '13 at 8:35
    
Yes I did. But having edit and preview side by side is not applicable to everyone : I still often use a good old 4/3 display. –  Larry Feb 20 '13 at 8:44

Fair enough; this sounds like a complicated change though so I doubt it's worth the effort. Up to the dev team! :) –  Shadow Wizard Feb 20 '13 at 9:03
