  • Linux version PageUp/Down always lead to whole-page shift

    Many pdf viewers naturally support using Page+Up/Down to move the page up/down smoothly. However, Foxit reader seems not: Page Up/Down caused going to the previous/next page (this is tricky, as only part of a whole page is in the screen).

    There was a similar issue in Windows version (http://forums.foxitsoftware.com/foru...page-up-button), and later probably solved. However, I have using the Linux version for years, and never saw the issue solved in any newest version.

    I wonder if there is other short-keys to support incremental Page-Up/Down?

          Dear Lisa,

          It is really really good to see that the new Foxit Reader (Linux version) finally solved this long lasting problem. I am very grateful to you as well as the development team. Without your efforts, this issue would probably persist for more years.

          I would also mention two minor (and easier) feature requirements here:

          (1) Preferences -> Recent Documents: at most 20 documents allowed. As many pdf reader users, we usually works with 100s pdf files. Remembering this records in "Recent Documents" helps us organize our reading activity. So, what about extend this limit to 50 or 100?

          (2) Preferences -> General -> Layout: Program UI font size. Only 3 options there (13, 14, 15). What about adding more sizes? e.g. (13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20)

          Thanks again!
