How to scroll pages like in MS Word - in MS program i could use page up page down buttons to scroll whole pages - even if on screen there is visible only small part of page. Every push on page up/down should move cursor to top of next/previeus page - it would be verry handy.

Maybe its only problem with Word documents imported to Writer .. but im sure that is not working like i want.

One way to achieve what you want is to use the navigator.

Hit F5 key and in the upper left side choose the navigation icon. Then find "page" icon and by using the next and previous arrows, you can move to the start of the next or the previous page.

I'm using LO

If F5 does not work, use F12.

The "next page" and "previous page" buttons on the nagivator do make scrolling through hundreds of pages as good as MS Word, however I can't see how to assign keys to them.

Recording a macro doesn't work, neither does anything I've seen in the tools -> customise -> keyboard settings.

Anyone have any ideas?

Here is the request for making user-customized shortcuts behave like Navigator Next/Prev:
