Question: how to keep cursor centered in the middle of the window

One annoying feature in using document mode that I found is this. As I hit the return key to execute one command and automatically jump to the command below it (a feature that I like), but after few returns, I find myself at the bottom edge of the window, with the cursor pointing at the last command in the window.

Now when hitting return, the current command is execuated, and the next command below it appears, and it is also at the bottom edge of the window.  The cursor is from now on, always sitting at the bottom edge of the window, and I am not able to fully see the rest of the command and what is below it any more.

What would be better, is to try to keep the window centered, so that as I hit a return, the actual cursor remains in the middle of the window, and the window itself scrolls up. This way the command I am about to evaluate, and anything below it, remain in full view.

What I end up doing now, is when I get to the bottom of the window, is to manually scroll the window down using the mouse, so that now the cursor is up higher, and I can see more the commands which I am about to evaluate, then I repeate this process.

Is there  a way to configure Maple to try to keep the window centered? it is really very annoying to have to keep adjusting the window every few returns, and when one has 100 commands to evaluate, one by one (since I want to see the result before I go to the next command), this process gets tiring.

(does Maple do any usability studies and evaluation on its user interface by any independent outside group?)

Please Wait...
