Can't you read? See #2135 for explanation - it's a feature not bug.

I read ticket #2135
As I understood the idea of 1-line scrolling is

"notices him about file coming to the end (if he doesn't see percentage indicator)."

I agree with andrew_b
-"IMO when we've reached the end of file, MC just shouldn't do anything if I try to scroll down even more.
Scrolling line by line will most likely confuse people ("WTF is my MC doing?")"

and so clear if no longer scrolls down we reached EOF
maybe it will be better in the upper right corner add symbols "EOF" instead of 1-line scrolling?

thanks

Replying to ika256:

I read ticket #2135

Read also #2135, #1778 and #2411.

and so clear if no longer scrolls down we reached EOF

It doesn't scroll further after reaching EOF - at the top line. Stopping at the bottom line makes parts of some files unreadable - would you fix #2410?

maybe it will be better in the upper right corner add symbols "EOF" instead of 1-line scrolling?

Or get back to 4.6 behavior and do full page down. Imagine there ARE people who want last line scrolled to the top (like me), current movement is just a compromise.

BTW: you can set param mcview_eof=~
