Q: Why doesn’t it work for me?

A: Either:

  1. Not using TinyMCE editor in WordPress backend?

  2. Are you sure that you are using the same editor window/browser instance? The scroll position is not global for your user account, it depends on the local client browser.

  3. Are you using IE? (not currently supported)

  4. Are you switching back and forth between Visual and HTML editor windows between every save? Currently this plugin will not store both simultaneously for a single window (only one or the other).
