    Sure you can on the MAC. Go into the spot mode, then over in Navigator (left panel) select 1:1 view, drag the little square section to the top left. Now use Fn-DownArrow.

    Great tip Benjamin – I have a wireless apple keyboard and realized I don’t have the HOME, PG Down & PG Up keys on my keyboard. I also checked my MacBook and noticed it docent have those keys either. I may need to re-map some keys or buy a new bluetooth keyboard with these keys – this is a very useful tool when you need it.

      Is it not just the 4 fn+arrow key combinations ? left for Home, right for End, up for page-up and down for page-down ? Or maybe you’re referring to some other generation of kdb that doesn’t match what I used briefly…

      Sounds like you need an updated keyboard. If you dont want to use the older Apple wired keyboard they now make a wireless with all these keys, plus the numeric keypad. For me, when I bought my iMac, I couldnt live without the numeric keypad (use it a lot) and it was the first upgrade, right along with the ram.

        Thanks Ed – I may be upgrading to the new wireless keyboard because I do miss the number keypad. Bob’s Tip above does give an alternate way to move through the image with the smaller keyboards (without the home, pg up & pg dn keys). However, the full size keyboard (w/keypad) would give me those keys back as well. Thanks!
