If I flip forward a few pages to find out how long my chapter is and then flip back to where I was reading, the title that was at the top of the page has moved onto the previous page.

Has anyone figured out why this happens and what determines when the text moves?

Jonathan - 

I have noticed this too and it can be a little annoying. One thing to remember is that the text is fluid - it has not been set by a typographer. When you change the text size, for example, everything will obviously shift. I haven't checked to confirm this, but perhaps when a verse is cut off, the page "resets" when you go backwards. Just a thought.

The same thing happens in other ebook readers I use. It's just a matter of text shifting slightly when the pages change.

I reported this and the response is they are working on it.  It can be very frustrating as our eyes are used to seeing things at the same place on a page and when they move it causes a mental disconnect (at least for me).

It also happens in the Windows Logos 4 when in paged view.  I do hope they can tweak their algorithm--I find it disconcerting too.
