I have started trying the "Jump to the spot that's clicked" option under General System Preferences because I'm pleased by Lion's vanishing scrollbars but they complicate finding the current location before scrolling.
There is however one serious problem with the "Jump to the spot that's clicked" option : You'll never even see your current location in the document, because scrollbars only become visible when selected, which makes returning challenging.
Is there an option or tool to either (a) show the scrollbars on mouseover, or else (b) always show transparent scrollbars.
If not, can anyone point me towards the most relevant Cocoa documentation? I should be able to implement this myself but any tips might save considerable time.
