One constant annoyance has become two

I find myself forever frustrated with Aperture's insistence on scrolling thumbnail views every time a view transition occurs.


For example... Double-click a thumbnail anywhere within the Browser or Spit-View to enter Viewer mode, and upon return to the previous view, the thumbnail will have been scrolled to the top-most position.


This behavior causes me to waste time re-finding where I started, needlessly.  Drives me nuts!


Now a new related behavior...


When in Map view, clicking anywhere within the map, immediately deselects each and every thumbnail!


I would much prefer Aperture never scroll or change a selection unless I ASK IT TO DO SO. 


Anyone else bothered by these behaviors?

    Not sure what's causing this (or what's happening).


    The first thing to do when you encounter UI issues that persist after closing and restarting Aperture is to delete your user preferences.  Details on how to do this are on Apple's Aperture trouble-shooting page.


    Is the thumbnail being moved?  Does the selection change to a different thumbnail?  Or is it simply that the view changes to show the top-most thumbnail?


    In Places view, clicking a pin selects all the Images associated with that pin.  Clicking a pin with Images already selected will de-select the selected Images and select the Images associated the the clicked pin.  Clicking the map, but not a pin, deselects all Images.  That's by design.  What are you trying to do?
