Description Carlos 2017-02-05 18:11:15 UTC
If you select the zoom to view the entire page, pressing PgUp or PgDn should advance or rewind exactly one page, and it is not. I do not know if there is any configuration parameter to correct this.

At 100% zoom, with default single-page view, the Page-Down & Page-Up accelerators should move the document canvas in full page views.  

Similar to the page movement implemented in the Navigator Sidebar deck.

That's an old bug inherited from OpenOffice.org

https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=88716 (Page Up and Page Down doesn't scroll a full page the first time)

With work on bug 101211 to provide UNO commands for customization assignment to move to Next Page / Previoous Page -- leaving default pgDn/pgUp under os/DE control for scrolling AND consistent selection use; no longer see the advantage to grabbing control of the PgUp / PgDwn key bindings uniquely for Single Page mode.

Suggests another default shortcut binding  perhaps <Ctrl>+PgUp/<Ctrl>+PgDwn might be the better choice--with the UNO command available to customize for other page modes.

Ctrl+PgUp/PgDown are bound to "To Header" and "To Footer", quite handy shortcuts. But Alt+PgUp/PgDown are free and are perfectly suited. 

.uno:GoToStartOfNextPage / .uno:GoToStartOfPrevPage
PAGEDOWN_MOD2/PAGEUP_MOD2 in officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/Accelerators.xcu

We could also bind the corresponding selection commands

.uno:GoToStartOfNextPageSel / .uno:GoToStartOfPrevPageSel

Please also add a nice tip of the day in
