In the Windows version of MySQL Workbench, when you run a query near the lower half of the Query Editor, and the Result Window is displayed, the Query Editor helpfully scrolls itself to the position of the cursor so that when the Results are displayed, you are also looking at the Query that generated them.

In the Ubuntu version, if a query near the bottom of the Query Editor is selected and run, the Result Grid opens, but the Query Editor does not scroll, meaning that the Query that was just executed is now covered by the results.

It is then trivial to then scroll back down to the Query, but the Windows version of doing this is preferable.

How to repeat:
Create a query, preceded by enough empty lines so that the SQL Editor gains a scroll bar.

Click on the Query, then Execute it.

The Results Grid will display, but the Query Editor will appear to be empty until you scroll down to the Query again.

Suggested fix:
Add an option to the Preferences window to choose between not scrolling (current Ubuntu behavior), and scrolling (Windows behavior).

I'm running version 8.0.15 on Mac Mojave 10.14.5, and the issue hasn't been fixed. Still no scroll.
