Could you please borrow some functionallity from PDF reader such as
- setting to scrolling via click on mouse wheel and moving mouse up or down;
- setting for Page Up / Page Down to operate in Continuos mode as as we pressed space.
- language selection without adding batch script for that for english windows xp.

    "special scrolling mode with the wheel button"
    - I simply do not think this is a good idea. Invisible modes make the interface less intuitive. How do you simply inform the user of such of capability? The fact that you are used to it does not make it a good idea.

    "making pgup/pgdn work like space/backspace"
    - There are people asking for the opposite. A recent request was to ensure that pgup/pgdn would bring us to the next/previous page at exactly the same position (instead of the topleft corner). This is incompatible with your request.

    "language selection via preferences"
    - Ok. Will do as soon as I have time.

    Language selection has been added in the git repository.
    As explained in my earlier comment, I disagree with the other suggestions
