    Ctrl - Down Arrow.

    The same keystroke also goes to next record in Browse mode, next request in Find mode and pages through layouts in layout mode.

    That is correct. If you normally keep the status area locked and are scripting the change to preview mode you can use a script step to unlock the status area, then lock it again as you return to browse mode.

    Ok. I just did not want my staff to be able to see and go to any layouts.

    If I unlock the status area, and hide all the layouts from the layout menu, there is no way they can get to the layouts right?

    Also, how do I lock it again when I return to browse mode? The report opens in a new window. When they close that window, the previous window will need to be locked.

    Re: Dumb Question. Why cant I go to the next page in preview mode with Page-Down?

    I never have any layouts visible from the status-area layouts menu (except when in layout mode). Just uncheck the checkbox for all your layouts re: "Include in layouts menu".

    The report opens in a new window. When they close that window, the previous window will need to be locked.
    No, each window has its own separate status area which is shown or hidden, locked or unlocked. Unlocking and showing status area in a new window should have zero effect on the visibility or locked-state of a different (original) window.
