There are two types of scrolling behaviors that are best depending on the type of PDF being viewed. When viewing a drawing, scrolling should zoom in and out; when viewing a text-based document, scrolling should pan up and down the page. To be adaptable to both types of PDFs, Revu has two different scrolling modes depending on the page view.

In Single page mode , mouse scrolling will zoom. In Continuous mode , scrolling through multiple PDFs is enabled.

Switching Modes

There are are two ways to switch to Single page mode:

  • Using a keyboard shortcut: Press Command-4
  • From the Menu Bar: Click View > Single page mode

There are two ways to switch to Continuous mode.

  • Using a keyboard shortcut: Press Command-5
  • From the Menu Bar: Click View > Continuous mode

The current mode can quickly be toggled by holding down the Command key while scrolling on your mouse.

A list of Revu keyboard shortcuts is available in the Revu Help menu and on our website.
