Steps to Reproduce

1.Create a section with dropdown and use that section in Repeating dynamic Layout 
2.Run the case and let the RDL have 4-5 rows so that a vertical scroll will come. 
3.Scroll down and change dropdown for last row section and immediately click outside 
4.Observe fin IE and chrome scroll is moving up , and in IE focus also changes 

Root Cause

A defect or configuration issue in the operating environment :-

Pega focuses the first editable input element after refresh and IE interprets it differently and so it scrolls up. The issue only happens in IE.


Local Change:-

Add a input element in the section and make it hidden using the following ways: 
 Use inline CSS -> visibility:hidden; 
or  Add custom style-class(with visibility:hidden as its style) in skin rule and use that class in editable/readonly class of Presentation tab in properties configuration panel
