keyboard shortcuts for scrolling

Post by rmmaniac »

Please add keyboard shortcuts for scrolling that standard XnView built-in(view mode)

If scrollbars visible:
CTRL+Home:scroll to top of the page
CTRL+End: scroll to bottom of the page
CTR+PageUp:scroll up one page
CTR+PageDown:scroll down one page
even better If scrollbars visible:just press PageUp,PageDown,Home,End without CTRL key
Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english

The problem is that these hotkeys are already used to change file

How about as, by default, unassigned shortcuts?

I do have some muscle memory from browsers and from one other image viewer I used to use for page up and page down for scrolling quickly. Meanwhile, the arrow keys work for me to switch between files, but also I've got a grouping of keys assigned for common things I would do with an image, and I'd use those instead of touching page up and down for swithcing between images. So, for me page up/down are freed up and lacking a sensible use currently. It would be a slight perk to be able to use just the keyboard when I so wished.

I have had some mouse buttons that I've not been using, so I assigned them to ctrl, which does allow me to now do that scrolling a page up and down purely with a mouse. But sometimes I just like using a keyboard.
