Undo/Redo in PS v3 ISE editor don't bring changes on-screen

User(s) can reproduce this bug
When the undo command (control-z) is used, changes are made to the file, but if they are offscreen it is impossible to tell where they are.
Most editors will bring the location of the change on-screen. Then you can do "Redo" to bring the changes back and see where they are. As it is, determining the latest change is like searching for a needle in the haystack.
How often does this happen?
Have you seen this problem before in this product?
I don't know if this issue existed previously
- In a large script, make a change anywhere in the file
- Page up/down to a completely different section
- Try to use Control+Z/Control+Y to locate the change
Result: Practically impossible.
Expect: Control+Z zooms the scroll position to bring the location of the change on screen. Control+Y brings the change back, where it is easily visible. The undone operation was to delete some selected text, then undo should even set the selection to that text again.
These are standard text editor behaviors.

I have the same issue across MANY servers. I'll be working on a file and after awhile redo/undo will drop/remove code from random locations and then the file is completely corrupted. I have repeated this issue in both Win2012&R2 across multiple non-connected domains. It makes this editor completely unusable because the risk of corruption of a large PS file is not worth it. Please fix!
