 Quite often I find myself wanting to scroll to a certain part of a

two thirds of the way down. So, is there a single gesture to get to
any point on a page? That is, as opposed to a series of swipes or
flicks. Note: on my Mac the whole of a very long web page can be
scrolled with a single movement of the mouse.
Apart from the top, no.
 A lot of programs keep settings separate, so you have to leave
the program, go to Settings, scroll down a very long list, find what
has to be changed, change it and then ... pauses for breath ... go
back to the app which has hopefully saved its state.
Yes. It is a really dumb idea.
that's what I have to do if I want to change the thread order in
NewsTap. It's a little circuitous, to say the least. So I'm assuming
there must be a compelling reason why the settings can't be set
within the app itself. Does anyone have any idea what the reason is?
Apple say that the right way to do it is in the settings app.
But yes, it is going back in time a long way. For some things, it works
ok, but for other things it really is the worst possible idea.
