Autoscroll as you type!
As a career typist I am continually frustrated that as I type my text goes lower and lower on the page, instead of scrolling automatically so that my typing is always near the top of the page. My transcriptionist friends agree! This is terrible for our ergonomics, not to mention just plain annoying, to either always have our text at the bottom of the screen, sometimes only half visible, or else having to stop and scroll the whole page up. THIS NEEDS CHANGING URGENTLY!

Use Split and type in the upper window, resize to a narrower window as desired.

I voted. But only do this for users who enabled this in settings!
If I understand your request correctly, I disagree. It is better to be able to see the text leading into what you're typing than blank space below.
A band-aid until they fix it:
Change the size of the window so that it is only 50% or 75% as tall, and position it near the top of your screen. You will still by typing at the "bottom," but it won't be buried behind your keyboard or books or whatever is blocking the screen. That's all I can suggest, so I hope it helps a little.
There are several similar requests already running.
