The 'smooth scrooling' feature present in the Live Editor is driving me crazy by introducing real bad input lag and stutters as the 'smooth' scrolling updates around 15 FPS.
My editing experience would be greatly improved if I could disable this feature, so does anyone know how to get rid of the smooth scrolling?

Divya's suggestion can help with scrolling performance when outputs are on the right, but I suspect that's not what you're referring to. Try running the following internal command and see if it helps:'LiveEditorSmoothScrolling', false)

@Levi Blake The short answer is no, there isn't another setting. But this particular feature was only ever available in the Live Editor, so it sounds like you're running into a different but similar issue. Please open a tech support case if you'd like to further troubleshoot this. Thanks!

I assume you are referring to the Synchronous Scrolling feature. To disable this, right-click the output section and select the Disable Synchronous Scrolling option.
