    I had the problem when the original update happened and was fixed after a update came out. now its back today when i logged on to my computer. 

    This new problem doesn't even scroll to show the new message red line.

    not sure if it's a complete fix but I hit ctrl+r to restart discord and autoscroll worked again.

    This just started happening to me yesterday evening too. Discord won't auto-scroll to the bottom for a new message even when the window is focused. I've rebooted my computer twice and uninstalled and re-installed discord twice and nothing has fixed it.

    I have the same issue, auto scroll doesn't even work when the window is focused. This is incredibly annoying, I have a Discord focused monitor and now I constantly how to move over and scroll. Please fix this.

    I'm having the same issue, but weirdly only with embeds.

    My chat will autoscroll just fine with everything except embeds.  Doesn't seem like a huge deal until you realized that a lot of bots utilize embeds a LOT.

    having the same issue as Byzantine ever since a few days ago - general chat works but embeds from bots will not scroll at all. kept thinking it would fix itself but it's starting to drive me nuts bc we use a lot of bot activity on my server. the problem is not on my android phone or iPad but it affects my MacBook desktop discord app. hoping for a fix soon! only slightly bothered me at first but it's starting to get on my nerves after a few days......

    Same issue, though for more detail I'm using the browser version in Chrome on a PC, and like Rey and Byzantine said, it's pretty much only embeds. The behavior is different if I'm the one posting vs. if other people are posting, as well. It will at least scroll part of the way down the embed if I am the one doing it (sometimes), while if other people are, it gets hung up at the top of the first embed they post and won't move until I manually scroll or post. I inquired about it via twitter a few days ago and got asked if I had refreshed the browser. No other response since, although I answered that question and provided more detail. I've completely closed Chrome at least twice since this started happening last week, to no effect. If anyone has a clue how to fix this please lmk. :[

    It's happening also here. I thought it was something related to my pc and the app but then I had to open desktop version in Chrome and there it worked good for about 1 min then the auto scroll stopped to work also there.
    Fix it please, it's terrible to work this way.

    I thought I was the only one... it's pretty frustrating deling with this, it does happen with embeds only but when your server is playing with a bot who utilizes embeds a lot, the problem is quite in your face. behaves like this - https://i.imgur.com/zvllxfQ.gifv

    It seems to be an issue with zoom level. I set it to default and it started scrolling properly. Default zoom level is too large for my liking so I hope they fix it soon.

    I tested out Kyo's theory and it was the same for me. It really sucks because the default zoom is too big for my screen so I can hardly keep up with the chats, even with compact mode.

    I'm having this issue too. Really bothersome, seems to be the zoom.

    been checking this thread every once and a while since it was made, and there is still not solution. i am on default zoom, so that isn't the problem, though it seems zooming in is a temporary fix. the problem exists on both browser and client. sad to see that its been a month and this hasnt been fixed.

    No news? I did try everything on discord but nothing worked, the zoom theory wasnt helping for me

    True for me too - it seems to be specifically with multi-line embeds from bots. The bug exists on the web app and the Windows desktop app, but not on the Android app (haven't tried iOS/OSX). You can just hit page down every few seconds but it is really rather annoying. I have the default zoom.

    A quick update on this that might be very useful to the devs - this first happened to me on a laptop. I reproed it on a desktop but the desktop had 3 screens, one of which had Windows UI scaling set to <>100% and the other two were set to 100%. Seeing other people's comments about zoom and knowing that Windows does some terrible nonsense when your UI scaling isn't 100%, I tried it on two monitors. On a monitor with <>100% Windows UI scaling, it fails to scroll. On a monitor with 100% Windows UI scaling, it scrolls fine.

    I'm guessing the other people here are either on laptops or high-res desktops.

    (Also to everyone else - if you set your Windows UI scaling to 100%, this won't happen any more. But your icons all through Windows will all be too tiny) :)

    The image is of my current NOT-recommended scaling - you need to set it to 100%. It's in Settings..Display.

    Same problem. I had Discord zoom at 90%. I set to 100%, it works reliably.

    Discord is on my 3rd monitor, 1080 resolution, all my monitors are at 100% scaling.

    I would love to be able to use sub-100% zoom, a built in feature of the application, and also be able to have core scrolling functionality still work. If zoom level is going to break the message handling and not warrant a fix, why even offer zoom as a feature?

    I got it to work by disabling a feature in Windows settings. Go to Settings>Display like pugwonk says above. But below the scale layout drop box there is a "Advanced scaling settings" link, click it. Un-toggle "Let windows try to fix apps so they're not blurry" so that it is off. Problem immediately went away for me. Good Luck, hope this helps.

    No change from the Fix Blurry Apps setting for me. On or off, auto-scroll does not work at <100% zoom in Discord.

    This issue was fixed and now it's broken again after an update a couple weeks ago.

    I have been struggling with this issue for a couple months and never understood what the issue was. I too am in Mudae servers so it has been extremely annoying. But I am glad to know that it was all because I was scrolled out just a little bit. Now I can finally move on. Thank you guys for helping me out, it really means a lot.
