    Anyone know if any of the keys (or combinations of keys) allow you to scroll down a page. Like when reading articles on a news site?

    One would think holding down the arrows would allow me to scroll down the page. I still have to reach onto the iPads screen and scroll with my finger even though I now have a wireless keyboard!

    Thx

    Unfortunately, no, you still have to use your finger(s) to scroll, even with a keyboard attached. That's just the way it is...

    Apple should really allow this, especially in using a document processing application

    Sent from The Droid... The one you were looking for...

    Scrolling with a finger can be a hassle. You might want to switch to using a stylus for scrolling down. I'm finding that a better solution.

    At least in Safari and some other browser apps, at least it just takes 1 or 2 taps at the top of the webpage to automatically scroll back to the top.

    Thx for those replies. Not the answer i was looking for but . . . It is what it is. Maybe Apple will surprise us and put this feature into their next OS update.

    The Dolphin HD browser (free in the app store) enables gestures for a variety of actions such as "scroll to top" and "scroll to bottom." Not a solution in the context of this thread, but I like the browser.

    for JB'd iPads, "scroll to bottom" is one of the features in "action menu plus pack"... i'm not sure if it's also in the free version "action menu"...
