I am a bit puzzled about this report. I understand it that Page Up/Down show smooth scroll animations, but Arrow Up/Down do an instant jump. Are you a new Okular user, or can you describe the changes you observed? AFAIK smooth scrolling was added in 1.10.0 and received a fix in 1.10.1; but applies to both Page and Arrow keys.
Comment 2 Orestis 2020-06-08 19:54:35 UTC
I see that I had not stated the okular version in the initial comment; my bad. Right now `okular --version` on my system yields 1.10.1 and the issue is still present. You stated that there should be scroll animations with both the Page and Arrow keys. Nevertheless, I am only seeing scroll animations for the Page keys. Using the Arrow keys results in instant jumps. Is this the intended configuration? Is it controllable in the settings? I don't think I have made any setting alterations regarding this.
Comment 3 David Hurka 2020-06-08 20:22:59 UTC
I don’t think this is intended. It should be same, or reverse. I remember that I saw scroll animations for both arrow keys and page keys when I installed Okular 20.04. (Damaged my laptop then, so I can’t test it right now.) Currently, this is not configurable.

Laptop fixed, Okular not; but I can confirm it now. No smooth scroll animation only on arrow keys.

Git commit c54c38f761fb79efd0d552bdb88c7977f22b3a88 by Nate Graham. Committed on 11/09/2020 at 13:59. Pushed by ngraham into branch 'release/20.08'. Re-add smooth scrolling for arrow key and mouse wheel scrolling This is safe now that the animated transitions no longer block repeated scroll actions during the animation.

It seems to me that this is not working anymore. I am on version 21.04.3, and there is no animation using the arrow keys (left and right), while there is an animation using the page up and down keys.

IIRC this may be intentional, because it allows you to quickly compare two following pages. (Like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blink_comparator.) If there was an animation for Left/Right Arrow in version 20.12, or the animation is missing even if the page can scroll horizontally, this is a bug. You should make a new bug report then.
