smooth scrolling improvement?

The only reason I mention this is because I initially thought it worked this way & I was impressed (by this feature of smooth-scrolling, not by smooth-scrolling in general).

What if a smooth-scroll only scrolled at most one page worth of lines? If lines 50-100 are on the screen now, and I smooth-scroll to lines 550-600, I don't really need to see lines 100-550 go by quickly - it may be enough to scroll as if 100-550 didn't even exist. This keeps the visual cue that I'm moving down (or up) in the file, but seems slightly less visually overwhelming.

I feel the user-happiness with this feature is to get through
fine-tuning of the scrolling parameters, and in particular the
acceleration curve.
I wish we had some control on this curve, through a setting dialog.
After some time of random fiddling, I'm sure one monkey would come out
of the crowd, with a pleasing result, or recipe.

Yes, we also had some ideas similar to that. We'll try to experiment with
it.

This "feature" really bugs me. How can I disable it?

I found the answer in another thread. Here was the response:

It's not in the UI yet.You could edit the file editor.xml in your IDEA settings directory: usually something like: \.IntelliJIdea\config\options\editor.xml Change the value of to false. ]]>
