When I view pdf file with Preview, I can use wheel click mouse to scroll one page up/down. How can I do the same thing with trackpad? Using two finger scroll gives me two much scroll. I need to scroll up/down only one pdf page with trackpad.

I dont have a Magic Trackpad, but on my Magic Mouse its the same gesture that is used for forward and back in Safari. In the mouse its swipe two fingers to the left and right, so if the Trackpad is just like that of a macbook, Im 99% sure its swipe three fingers to the right or left.

Hope it Helps! Kevin
