I can't seem to find the keyboard shortcut that allows me to select the page number.

What is it? Or if it doesn't exist, how can I add one?

I'm using Evince 3.10.3 on Ubuntu 14.04.


The shortcut to focus the page entry should be CTRL + L. That's what it is for evince 3.4.0, at least.

  • It doesn't work, unfortunately. I recently upgraded from 12.04 to 14.04, and the new version of Evince came along with it. I seem to remember it being CTRL+L as well... – Daniel Que May 6 '14 at 19:17

    @DanielQue Works on Ubuntu 16.04 Evince 3.18.2. Is L is a mnemonic for Location? Could not find any GUI indication of it however... Edit: ah, now that I've tried fullscreen, I see what happens: the top menu, which is shown by Ctrl + L is an autohide on hover thing. Only it fails to unhide when not in fullscreen.....
