Typewriter mode changes scroll position to random location (may be a multiple monitor connect/disconnect issue)

When I enable or disable type writer mode it will randomly change my current scroll position.

1. I want my scroll position to animate to the center based on cursor position.
2. If I'm leaving typewriter mode, it should keep my scroll position (unless I'm at the end of the file ... if you don't support over scrolling)

I use Type writer mode to write, but I need to switch off the mode when I edit. Otherwise it drives me insane.

I have a 5k UltraFine at home, I use my laptop by itself on my lap, and then I have a 27" Thunderbolt at my work office. In traveling between these locations I run into issues with typewriter mode moving my scroll position to the wrong spot when I first enable it, or disable it. Then I either need to start typing something, or manually fix my scroll position.
