Currently when following along in "Karaoke" mode the stage graph and step header scrolls out of view when the log gets long.
It may be worth considering changing the behavior to show at least some context of the current stage graph (if not the whole graph) and perhaps the step header (see attached) at all times.
This would reduce the need for people to scroll up, stopping (often unknowingly) the following along from log, but still let them see the context and log at the same time.

I think what we might do is not have the log expanded when you initially open the run. Expanding then starts tailing the log.
brody jamesdumay having watched people struggle I think it might be worth at least thinking about this. Generally ALL logs will be long enough to scroll a stage graph off the screen, but you only really care about the last several lines of the log anyway while it is running, seeing the stage graph is very nice.
