This section describes how you can navigate through a document in Okular.
There are multiple ways of scrolling the viewing area. One is to use the Up Arrow and Down Arrow keys. You may also use the scrollbar, your mousewheel or the Page Up and Page Down keys.
Another way is to hold the → .mouse button down at any place on the document while dragging the mouse in the opposite direction of where you want to move. This procedure only works if the Browse Tool is enabled, which you can select by choosing
If you want to read a document with several pages use the automatic scrolling feature of Okular. Start automatic scrolling with Shift+Down Arrow or Shift+Up Arrow. Then use these keys to increase and decrease the scrolling speed. You can start or stop automatic scrolling temporarily by pressing the Shift key; pressing any other key deactivates this feature.
Another way to navigate through a document with several pages is to use the mouse pointer. Drag the page up or down, continue to drag even while reaching the bottom or top of the screen and behold. Once you cross the border of a page, the mouse cursor appears on top or bottom of the screen again and you can just continue to drag.
The navigation panel on the left side of the screen enables two more ways of navigating through a document:
If you click on a page thumbnail the viewing area will be brought to that page.
If the document has a table of contents, clicking on a table of contents item will bring the document to the page linked to that item.
If the document has bookmarks, enable the Bookmarks view and click them to go to the associated page. If bookmarks are not only shown for the current document, you can quickly switch to bookmarks in all recently opened files.
If the document has annotations, enable the Reviews view and click the annotations or select them with the Up Arrow and Down Arrow keys and press Return to go to the associated page.
Some documents have links. In this case you can click on them and the view will change to the page it links to. If the link is to a web page or some other document the default KDE handler for that format will be invoked. For example, clicking on a link pointing to “http://www.kde.org” will open the web page in the default KDE's web browser.
Additionally, you may use the following functionality to quickly move to specific places in the document:
You can go to the beginning of the document using Ctrl+Home or using → .
You can go to the end of the document using Ctrl+End or using → .
You can go forward in the document using Space or Page Down. To go to the next page of the document use the Toolbar button or → in the menubar.
You can go back in the document using Backspace or Page Up. To go to the previous page of the document use Toolbar button or → in the menubar.
