How do I disable this annoying auto-scrolling in notion iOS ?

I love the fact that Notion exists on iOS, but for me it is almost unusable for one reason :

The auto scrolling is completely broken. If I pause playback as the auto scroll animation is beginning, it doesn't stop event if I'm trying to scroll with my finger, hence the following situation : I start playback, listen to a few bars and when it gets to the edge of the screen, I stop playback and want to go back in the score to fix some things. I'm expecting to be able to instantaneously scroll back to the bar I want to fix, but instead what happens is that since the beat in focus reached the edge of the screen, it starts the animation to scroll to the next part. This animation takes ages, goes the opposite way from where I want to go and "fights back" my finger trying to scroll the other way.

Is there any way to fix this problem? If not, it would be nice to fix it in the next version (perhaps add a "disable auto scrolling altogether" setting). It is currently a deal breaker for me.

We do have an "auto-scroll off" function for note entry, and we do have plans to add a similar option to switch off in playback. This won't be in the next update (which will go live due mid-October) but have it planned for a subsequent one.
