    Gary, informative even after using an Apple mouse for years. Wondering is there a way of increasing the distance a finger gesture will allow. I recall using a mouse with a scroll wheel, MS days, and there was the ability to increase the distance a turn of the scroll wheel allowed. thanks R.

    Robert: Yes. System Preferences, Accessibility, Pointer Control, Mouse & Trackpad, Trackpad Options.

    I'm an editor, working in long, complex manuscripts. I was hoping for help learning to scroll more efficiently when working in book-length Pages/Word files. (I already know how to jump to the start and end of the manuscript.) But that leaves a lot of scrolling to go chapter by chapter to edit. Currently, I use Show Thumbnails, and scroll the thumbnails using two fingers on the trackpad. I also use "Find" to get around quickly. Got any other suggestions? Thanks.

    Samme: How about using the relatively new sidebar TOC?
