PDF preview in Mavericks: can anyone confirm this behaviour?

macOS and Mac Apps
Hi, When viewing a PDF file in per-page mode in Mavericks 10.9.1 it looks like scrolling is somehow continuous (and not per page!) when running VO. This means that when using the arrow keys or PgUp and PgDown the bottom of the previous page is visible on the screen as well as the top fragment of the next page. I would expect only one page to be shown and this is exactly what I get with VO turned off. This is the case in full-screen mode as well as in normal mode. Any ideas? /Roland

It is a bug in preview.

Hi Marrie, thanks for the hint, Skim looks pretty accessible. Except I have one issue you might have discovered a solution for. I often need to give presentations i.e. run in full screen mode and then go from page to page. In Skim this is done using command+right / left arrow keys. However, if I do this while interacting with the text I get an announcement like "Next page" but the page is not advanced. The nice thing about Skim is that it is open source so we have a chance to fix this if there's no work around. /Roland
