Okay, I have to admit that when I first saw this next keyboard shortcut, I thought it was a little obscure, a little random, and then I realized that it's actually really useful when you want to compare two different pages back and forth that aren't next to each other. So let's say I want to compare page 5 with page 2. So I have double-clicked on page 5, and I then double-click on page 2 in the Pages panel. Then I want to toggle back and forth between them using my keyboard without having to go over to the Pages panel and double-clicking these page thumbnails again. So the way to do that is to hold down the Command key or Ctrl in Windows, and then use Page Up and Page Down.
So Command+Page Up is the back to the previous page. Command+Page Down is forward or just back and forth. This just goes back and forward between the last two pages you were on. Command+Page Up/Ctrl+Page Up, Command+Page Down/Ctrl+Page Down. Very nice shortcut for when you want to just jump back and forth between two pages that aren't next to each other in any particular order in your document. Very handy for that situation.
