Foxit PDF Reader Page Navigation

The Foxit PDF reader lets you can turn to the next page using Space or Right, or to previous page using Shift+Space, Left or Backspace shortcut keys. If you scroll a page, the page is moved up or down by the height of the view, so the next or previous page is always slightly shifted vertically in the view because the view is not the same height as the page. After scolling several pages, you have to adjust the view to display the whole of a page again. When reading paginated documents, it's easier to turn pages instead of scrolling through pages.

Foxit developers: The function names in italics are swapped in the on-line help.

Note: Maria H. reports that the same keys also work for the Adobe PDF Reader.
