When issuing SQL commands to the server the result of these commands appear in the "Action Output" in the output window. However when various commands are issued the "Action Output" doesn't scroll down so the output of the later commands remain hidden and you have to manually go to the output window and scroll it manually.

This is not a serious bug but is pretty annoying.

#70421 was marked as "fixed" but it still active for me.

How to repeat:
Start MySQL and connect to the DBMS

Issue some commands (or repeat the same command) a couple of times or until the Action Output gets filled.

It can be any command like SHOW TABLES.

Suggested fix:
Either fix the problem to make the action output scroll automatically as commands are issued or make the output of the most recent commands appear at the top of the list.

Thank you for the bug report. I couldn't repeat on MAC OSX Yosemite:

MySQL Workbench Community (GPL) for Mac OS X version 6.3.4  revision
 0 build 828 (32 bit)
Configuration Directory: /Users/miguel/Library/Application Support/MySQL/Workbench
Data Directory: /Applications/MySQLWorkbench.app/Contents/Resources
Cairo Version: 1.10.2
OS: OS X 10.10.x Yosemite
CPU: 4x Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50GHz - 16.00GiB RAM

Maybe some particular condition to be repeatable?. Thanks.

Miguel, thanks for pinging me!
I've noticed this gets reproduced after I click inside action log (wanted to copy Response field).

Then autoscroll stops when clicked line need to be scrolled out of visibility.
