XDVI key commands
Some commands take a numerical argument which must be entered
before the kestroke command. For example
15g will cause the display to go to page 15.
Help and Exiting
- H or ? or Help
- Displays this help text.
- q or Control-C or Control-D
- Quits the program.
- n or f or Space or Return or LineFeed or PgDn
- Moves to the next page (or to the nth next page if a
number is given).
- p or b or Control-H or BackSpace or DELete or PgUp
- Moves to the previous page (or back n pages).
- u or Up-arrow
- Moves up two thirds of a window-full.
- d or Down-arrow
- Moves down two thirds of a window-full.
- l or Left-arrow
- Moves left two thirds of a window-full.
- r or Right-arrow
- Moves right two thirds of a window-full.
- g or j or End
- Moves to the page with the given number. If no page
number is given, then it goes to the last page.
- Move to first page in document.
- Move to last page in document.
- Control-A or Again
- Repeat last command (including its argument).
- Control-L or Clear
- Redisplays the current page.
- Prints bitmap unit, bit order, and byte order.
- ^ or Home
- Move to the ``home'' position of the page. This is
normally the upper left-hand corner of the page,
depending on the margins as described in the -margins
- Moves the page so that the point currently beneath the
cursor is moved to the middle of the window. It also
(gasp!) warps the cursor to the same place.
- This key toggles the use of greyscale anti-aliasing for
displaying shrunken bitmaps. In addition, the key
sequences `0G' and `1G' clear and set this flag,
respectively. See also the -nogrey option.
- Normally when xdvi switches pages, it moves to the home
position as well. The `k' keystroke toggles a `keep-
position' flag which, when set, will keep the same
position when moving between pages. Also `0k' and `1k'
clear and set this flag, respectively. See also the
- Sets the margins so that the point currently under the
cursor is the upper left-hand corner of the text in the
page. Note that this command itself does not move the
image at all. For details on how the margins are used,
see the -margins option.
- P ``This is page number n.''
- This can be used to make
the `g' keystroke refer to actual page numbers instead
of absolute page numbers.
- Forces the dvi file to be reread. This allows you to
preview many versions of the same file while running
xdvi only once.
- Changes the shrink factor to the given number. If no
number is given, the smallest factor that makes the
entire page fit in the window will be used. (Margins
are ignored in this computation.)
- Sets the density factor to be used when shrinking
bitmaps. This should be a number between 0 and 100;
higher numbers produce lighter characters.
- Toggles to the next unit in a sorted list of TeX dimension
units for the popup magnifier ruler.
- Toggles expert mode (in which the buttons do not appear).
Also `0x' and `1x' clear and enable this mode,
respectively. See also the -expert option.
- Toggles Ghostscript anti-aliasing. Also `0V' and `1V' clear
and enables this mode, respectively. See also the the -gsalpha
- Find another DVI file.
- Go back to the previous anchor.
- Follow hyperlink forward.
