    Fast solution other than waiting for 6.x version: download 5.3.1.0606
    Hope that could be helpful

    PS: Awesome job with your software foxit team

    Dear guiambros,
    The Lef/Right arrow shortcut key will be expected to be added back too in our next major release version of foxit reader--Foxit Reader 6.0.

    I'm also looking forward to seeing this feature back. I also find it incredibly annoying to see LEFT/RIGHT ARROW replaced by CTRL-PGDOWN.
    I guess the Product Manager tried to clone Microsoft Word shortcuts, but there was no reason to disable left/right arrow. This has been working for several years; no reason to break it.

    We will bring it back in future release, for now, you can hit Enter to replace F3 to go to Next search result.

    Left/Right arrow key not working issue has been forwarded to our PM team for reference, hope it will be brought back in next release.
    Regarding Home/End key, we change it to Ctrl+Home and Ctrl+End.

  • Why are Foxit Readers keyboard shortcuts so different?

    I just registered a new account to ask this question. I find it mightily annoying that Foxit Reader has the following mapping for shortcut keys:

    Left arrow - Prev Page
    Right arrow - Next page
    End - Last Page

    By default most of the apps we are familiar with use Page up, Page Down and Ctrl End.

    I find this so annoying. Is there a way I can customize the keyboard shortcuts? I am not able to find this in the Preferences Menu option either.

    [[As a software developer one of the first rules I've been taught is not to force the User to change a practice for the sake of change(especially when there is a Page Up/Down key staring at you from every keyboard)]]
Working...
