I'm a lurker on this list (hoping to someday contribute), but more than
that, I'm a User. I also tell everyone I know to use AbiWord, install it
on every computer I'm asked to set up (my mom and aunt both love it). That
said, I really don't like this move view but not cursor behavior. Bugs me
everytime I catch it.
Could we make it an option in Prefs or something?
"Use new/old page up/ page down behavior"
Although, alt+pgup/pgdn works as well.
Btw, Fantastic work on this project. Never ceases to amaze me. I remember
a two years ago writing a term paper that was due in an hour on AbiWord
.7.something... and it crashed... and I just about freaked out. It's
definitly come a long way
