I have gotten used to using the up/down keys to advance within the Preview, but recently, this is not working--when I hit the down key I get a bell and no advance.  Of course I can move the cursor to the top of the screen and, if I am agile enough, get the  toolbar, where I can advance/go back to either the immediate next/previous page or toe the next/previous page selected by my viewing history.  But once I move to the new page, I have to work again to get the toolbar.

Forgot to ask... what OS version, what TeXShop version?

I have the following settings in the Preview Tab of TeXShop->Preferences. (Note: I default to MultiPage rather than Double Page.) When I set Double Page under Preview->Display Format and go Full Screen the Up/Down arrows in fact change pages for me. Any difference from the way you have things set up?

Good Luck,
