Random Tip: Keyboard Shortcuts for Scrolling

  • If you want to go to the beginning/end of the document, use Command+Up/Down Arrow
  • If you want to scroll one page down, use Option+Up/Down Arrow
This will really save me a lot of time when I'm using an iBook because I hate reaching for the Function key to scroll up and down.
