Keys for browsing records within list boxes

You can use PgDn/PgUp keys, and Up/Down keys to browse records within list boxes. This is context sensitive — when there are several list boxes on the same screen, you can position your mouse cursor within one of the list boxes and the shortcut keys that you have pressed will affect the respective list box.

For example, there are several list boxes on the Products report. As the following screenshot shows, to browse products in the product list box, you can simply position your mouse cursor within the product list box, and use the PgDn/PgUp keys, and Up/Down keys to browse the records.

Likewise, if you want to select a different corporation for the report, you can position your mouse cursor within the corporation list box and use the shortcut keys, as shown below.
When you want to browse the main product list, simply move your mouse cursor there, and use the shortcut keys, as shown below.
