MarkdownViewer++ synchronized scrolling not working
I just installed MarkdownViewer++ and tried it out. Love it except that synchronized scrolling doesn’t work. Neither window pane scrolls when I scroll the other.
I enabled the Plugins > MarkdownViewer > Synchronize scrolling option. When that didn’t work I quit and restarted Notepad++, but that didn’t help.
My Notepad++ is v8.6 (64-bit), running under Windows 11. Plugin Manager says I have version 0.8.2, which I understand to be the latest.
Do you have any ideas about what might be wrong?

If this is the one you’re talking about, it hasn’t been updated in over 5 years and Notepad++ and the editing component Scintilla have gone through many an update since then. I used to use this one too as well as another and I believe sync scrolling stopped working for me sometime ago.
I now use MarkdownPanel (actually, my fork of it) and it has seen some attention as of late. You may want to give that one a shot instead.
Yes, that’s the one. I got it from NP++'s Plugin Admin command. The command lists Markdown Panel too, but not a hint that one is more or less current and the other is fossilized.
I tried Markdown Panel. “Synchronize with caret” has no effect, but “Synchronize with first line in window” seems to work well. That’s good enough.

That feature is still blocked by an open issue with the .NET plugin infrastructure, although nothing really prevents the plugin developer from patching it himself, as @Michael-Vincent has already demonstrated.
