(*** This bug was imported into bugs.kde.org ***)

package: kghostview
severity: wishlist

I really likes kghostview's SPACE key shortcut for reading PS/PDF but I 
also miss gv's shortcuts for center next previous shortcuts (v f b 
are the default respectively). It'll be nice to support more from gv's.

It'll also be nice if search is supported as is done in gv which is 
also derived from ghostview.

A shortcut for "Goto Page" (View menu) is also missing. 
I would prefer Ctrl+G ("Go"), though Acrobat Reader is using Ctrl+N (which I find confusing since Ctrl+N 
usually means "New Document" or so). I'd be happy to see a shortcut implemented soon, in any case. 
Cheers, Peter

In Acrobat Reader I find it very useful to scroll up and down with the up and down arrow keys which is also possible in KGhostview.  But what I miss there is the possibility to go to the next resp. previous page by pressing the right resp. left arrow key.  These are very handy shortcuts in my opinion!

looks basically like a dupe of Bug 91481. ;-)

I also would like to see all these (and many other) features to be included. But it would be better to merge KGhostscript, KPDF, KDVI and KFax first and enhance all the features in the then only one app.
Comment 4 Davor Cubranic 2006-01-22 11:43:29 UTC
I disagree. This bug is asking for shortcut keys. But 91481 is a request to merge a bunch of different viewers into a single UI. Not a bad idea, but a different bug.

This bug is ten years old and I'm not sure kghostview even exists as a project any more. Is it time retire it?

Moved to Okular. Leaving it open because Okular has nothing that resembles “center”, but it does have: next/previous page, beginning/end of the document, and GoToPage.
