Hi,

I apologize if this has been covered, I haven't found an answer.

When I link one artboard to another in prototype mode, the second linked artboard opens at the top of the page.  Alternatively, if I link an object (not the page) from the first artboard to a second artboard (the page), the second linked artboard opens up in the middle of the page.  Is there currently a way to make an object link to a new page and open at the top?  Maintain scroll position doesn't work because the object is lower on a long page in the first artboard.

Anchor links would solve this but I'm confused as to why artboard to artboard opens at top of page but object to artboard opens in the middle of a page. a

Thanks.

When I link an object to another artboard (with Preserve Scroll Position unchecked), it goes to the top of that artboard. You're saying that for you it goes to the middle? I have not seen that behavior before.

Did not quite get what you are trying to do. Can you provide screenshots that can help me get an idea about what you are trying to do, and what happens as a result?

Thanks,

Preran

Idk how that answer got marked as 'Correct' but surely there has to be an explanation. I'm having this same issue on the latest version as of today (7/12/2019)
