[OS X TeX] Navigating in the TeXShop editor

Hello everyone,

I have been using TeXShop with satisfaction over the past three  
months or so, and actually quite like it. (I find it more convenient  
than Emacs + TeXniscope.) But there are some basic editing tasks that  
I still haven't learnt. For instance, Ctrl+V takes me down by a page,  
but how do I go up by a page. PageUp doesn't take the cursor up a  
page, but only displays the previous page. In general, I have noticed  
that many of the common things work just as in Emacs (Ctrl+V, Ctrl+K,  
Ctrl+D, and so on...), but not all of them. For instance, Alt+V  
doesn't take the cursor up a page, and so on. Any help on this... I  
am only three months into the Mac, so I might be missing something  

I couldn't find any documentation for simple navigation in the  
TeXShop editor, and had to learn things by trying out various things.  
I have at least two colleagues (an Emacs devotee and a vi devotee)  
who hesitate to use TeXShop just because they do not want to spend a  
lot of time learning the editor. Is there any resource I can refer to  
for resolving my own doubts, and also for convincing my friends that  
they can switch to TeXShop with benefit for the small price of  
learning a new editor!? Many thanks in anticipation of your help.
