Reset scrollable text when changing journal page

I have a UI elements that displays the content of a document or journal page with a slider if the text is taller than the viewport. It's set up like this.
In the same UI I have buttons to flip through the pages of said document/journal. The issue is that when the player changes the page, predictably the whole text gets swapped, but the scroll doesn't reset. So if the player finished reading page 1, and has scrolled all the way down, when they flip the page they will find themselves at the bottom of page 2 instead of the top of it, which is a bit weird.
Is there a way to reset the scrollbar using AC menu "offset journal" behavior? I didn't find this discussed anywhere although I'd expect it to be a pretty common scenario


  • Open up the UI prefab, and in the "page-flip" Button's Inspector, create a new "On Click" event that points to the Scroll View, and sets the ScrollRect's verticalNormalizedPosition property to 1.

  • Thank you Chris,
    unfortunately it doesn't seem to do anything: the pages filp but the scrollbar remains at the bottom. Am I supposed to tweak the buttons settings in the AC menu panel as well?

    No, that should be it - oddly, it works on my end.

    What are your AC/Unity version numbers?

    If you create a separate Button, not linked to the Menu Manager, that does the same thing, does that work?

  • Sorry, my fault. I made the edits in a scene where I placed all my UI prefabs, but forgot to apply the overrides. everything works as intended, thanks again!
