Another good fix is the AUTOSCROLL value.
In the OUTPUT (aka LISTING) window drill through the menus
Edit / Options / Ascroll...
then select the radio button for scroll amount N
and give it value 0 (zero)
Then, to save this setting, with the menus, on the main menu bar select
Options / Save settings now
You should need to do this only once!
Of course, you may be interested to discover that the commands hidden
behind this menu wandering, is only
listing; autoscroll 0; wsave ( using the full commands)
( or abbreviate that to !!)
lis; asc 0; wsa
