I am used to using pgdn and pgup buttons to scroll through documents a screen at a time (as in many browsers). Writer help confirms that scrolling is a page at a time, and does not indicate how one might switch that. How can one do this please? TIA, Dave

EDIT: Thanks to both posters who took the time to answer on May 14. Unfortunately, I don't understand how either answer addresses the question.

-My experience is that libreoffice seems to treat different documents differently with respect to usage of the pgdn and pgup buttons. Some scroll an entire page, others less than a screen at a time. So far, none seem to do exactly one screen at a time.

-I did check the full documentation for 3.6 and search for navigator. It seems an interesting tool, but I did not see an entry that addresses my specific question? Apologies in advance if I simply missed something.

Hi DaveHanson,

I think could be good take a look to the documentation, searching for the navigator.

open the complete Writer guide for 3.6.x and search for the navigator.

I'd suggest to try the actual program out yourself. The help is misleading here, it actually scrolls only a screen a time.
