Tips:

  • The Spotlight mode can be used as a convenient Reader mode. Just activate the Spotlight mode, then use the Up and Down cursor keys to navigate within the document under the spotlight.

    To minimize eye movement when reading texts, make sure that the "Center spotlight vertically" option is checked within the Spotlight settings. Normally you would not need a blinking cursor (caret) in the document when reading. So you can check the "Hide the text cursor" option as well:
