Using arrow and home / end keys to navigate within a pdf

Jul 1, 2013 11:02 PM

Sometimes, in Acrobat, the home, end and arrow keys just move a cursor within the text of a pdf. But other times, they serve to navigate between pages. How can I get them to serve the latter function?

    In the 'fit one full page' zoom mode, the arrow keys change pages (as do PgUp/PgDown) and Home/End go to the first/last page.

     

    In continuous-scrolling zoom modes (fit width, etc.) the arrow keys scroll line-by-line, and the other keys behave as above.

    Look at Page Display not Zoom.

    The only way to get the home/end and arrow keys to navigate an entire page is if you're viewing an entire page. So, you can't be zoomed in. You can set this as a default under Edit > Preferences > Page Display and under Zoom dropdown select "Fit Page" or you can use the keyboard shortcut (Windows) Ctrl + 0 prior to using the home/end/arrow keys to view and entire page.
