I use mupdf and I like it a lot, because I'm a vim-addict. One thing bugs me: There is no continuous scrolling. When you reach the end of a page and scroll further, then it "jumps" to the next page.

Is there a way to enable continuous scrolling?

I found http://bugs.ghostscript.com/show_bug.cgi?id=693425 and there it is written that you can use SHIFT+C to enable it. But this only makes the display yellow.

I use it on Windows 10 if this is relevant, but since it is mainly a unix tool, I ask the question here.

    Reading that bug report, I'd guess shift+C enables it when that specific patch is applied, but said patch is not part of mupdf. I've looked into this recently: it seems that there is no continuous scrolling in mupdf and that they are not interested in adding it (WONTFIX on a different bug).

    On Linux you could use Zathura, but unfortunately, there is no Windows version, afaik.

There is an PDF pager based off of mupdf that has exactly what you want: http://repo.or.cz/w/llpp.git

(Some unix OS'es might have an easy way to install it, for example Arch Linux has the package in the Arch User Repository: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/llpp/)

  • You need to build it yourself. I have no idea how hard this is on Windows 10. Let us know how that works out.. Sep 6, 2017 at 20:15
