When right-clicking on a document in skim there are two very useful options:

  • Single Page (good for presentations)
  • Single Page Continuous (suitable for reading)

Is there a way to define a shortcut which will toggle between the two? I guess AppleScript and probably this can be helpful. Problem is I don't know how to work with AppleScript.

I've just assigned custom shortcuts for the menu bar items.

You could also assign a shortcut to an AppleScript like this.

    tell application "Skim" to tell document 1
        if item -2 of (view settings as list) is single page then
            set view settings to {display mode:single page continuous}
            set view settings to {display mode:single page}
        end if
    end tell
end try
