Textastic forgets what line I was viewing in a file

This is mainly an annoyance in large files (which I deal with frequently).

After not using the app for a while, and returning to it, it forgets what line I was viewing (usually in the high 1000's), and instead it reverts to viewing line 1.

It basically happens on a daily basis, and so I'm left flicking my phone 20 times to scroll back to the bottom of my file. :(

Textastic currently remembers the cursor position, not the scroll position. So if you never move the cursor to the line you scrolled to, it will still be in line 1.

Good to know, but that just means it's forgetting the cursor position then, because I make edits to the bottom of the file, and then it forgets. Incidentally, it seems to be fixed if I disable the "Auto Word Wrap" feature.
