The requested feature exists in presentation mode, but for a standard document it would conflict with the papyrus mode. And should this "viewer mode" open the document read-only?

I think the required feature represents really a marginal use case with little added value (since TeXmacs is already a wysiwyg editor, it can't compare to viewing a TeX document in a dvi viewer as in the original report), not really worth modifying the core editor.

Moreover one can easily achieve the requested navigation functionality by implementing a custom scheme command that combines exporting to pdf and launching a viewer.

I'm closing, but feel free to re-open if you disagree.

I want to use texmacs as a viewer than as an edtior once in a while. The following functionality is currently not possible.

Fit all the contents of a page onto the screen and nothing else. Pg-UP and Pg-Down should just go to next page and should not move the cursor in to the middle of the page etc...

That is, using a latex kind of analogy, I just want to use texmacs as a dvi viewer (say xdvi) instead of being an editor (say gvim).

I posted the above request initially on the texmacs-users mailing list and Joris van der Hoeven suggested to file a bug regarding this. The original email can be found at http://lists.texmacs.org/wws/arc/texmacs-users/2005-11/msg00104.html
