Hi,

Just double-checking that I'm not doing something stupid. I'm marking up screenshots with IDs so I can refer to them easily later in the text, such as this

{#figure-6-5}
![Figure 6.5: The `httpMethod` field in an API Gateway Lambda Proxy event contains the HTTP method of the request.](images/ch6/http-method.png)

But when I use a link later like this [Figure 6.5](#figure-6-5), the link seems to take readers after the caption  of the screenshot in the PDF (so to a paragraph following an image, the image is just above the scroll on the screen so it's not actually visible.

Am I doing something obviously stupid here, or is this a bug? I assumed that the link would show the image on the screen, not position it immediately above the scroll fold.

Hi Gojko,

I tested this in PDF, EPUB, and MOBI in a test book made from your manuscript, and initially I couldn't reproduce it. I then realized that in a PDF, in Preview on my Mac, if the PDF is in "Continuous Scroll" rather than "Single Page" mode, I could reproduce this. I will note the issue for the team, though I'm not sure when someone will be able to look into it, sorry about that.

Kind Regards,

Len

Hi,

It's PDF only, sorry for not making this clear. For me it happens both in the Adobe Acrobat reader and Preview on a mac.
