Holding left click + scrolling lags behind

Describe the bug

On macOS if you hold left click to select, and then scroll up and down your selection matches the point you scroll to. On anytype it seems to be lagging behind when you scroll.

To Reproduce

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

    1. Open a page
    1. Insert enough blocks to have space to scroll up and down/resize your window
    1. Left click and hold to select some text/blocks
    1. While still holding left click scroll up or down

Expected behavior

Selection should sync up with mouse pointer location, regardless of scrolling amidst selection.

Desktop (please complete the following information):

  • OS: macOS 11.0.1
  • Device: MacBook Pro
  • Version: 0.16.18

Additional context

We’ve all been there where you’re trying to select elements bigger than your screen; you hold left click, move to a corner of the screen and are either frustrated that it autoscrolls too slowly or zooms past to row 123,930. This stops that.
