Output - Log window with many logs

Visual Studio 2013, Windows 8.1
When running an IOS app in Visual Studio connected to Mac system using Xamarin, consider many messages are being logged in OUTPUT window, like equivalent to 10 screen pages.
Scroll some lines above to middle of the log events. 
New mesages are logged (frequent ones like Request handled in ...)
Wait for sometime.
Whenever a new message is logged, screen / cursor moves to the bottom of the page.
Before i try to come to the middle of the page where the log i need is available
(probably takes a few seconds), a new log is entered (Request handled in ...)
Again, the view comes to the bottom-most part of the page.

Even when a new log is added at the bottom of output window,
view should be in the log where the cursor is placed.
