OSX scroll without moving cursor - keyboard shortcut

Tue Nov 07, 2017 8:19 am

Using Oxygen 19.1 standalone on OSX. When I have a file open (XML, XSLT, shell script etc), I want to scroll the window without moving the mouse. On Windows I can do this with Ctrl-Up Arrow and Ctrl-Down Arrow. What is the equivalent on OSX? I can do this with 2 fingers on the trackpad but I want a keyboard method to do it.

For your info, in Sublime Text on OSX I can do this action with ctrl-option-up arrow/down arrow.

Thanks,
Mark

Hi,

Scrolling by keyboard is a feature inherited from Java, so it's the same on OS X as on Windows, Ctrl+Up/Down Arrow. I'm afraid this is not user configurable.
On OS X these shortcuts overlap with some default system shortcuts (Mission Control), but these can be changed in the OS System Preferences > Keyboard, Shortcuts, Mission Control.

Aha! Great, that worked. I went to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts, and I unchecked Mission Control (which was Ctrl-Up Arrow) and also unchecked Application windows (Ctrl-Down Arrow).

Now I can do what I need with Ctrl-up/down, just like in Windows.

Thanks,
Mark
