Yes, pages up and down help a lot in such cases !
I had not tried too much since 'page down' once is fine
but a second 'page down' to reach further text blocks seem to loose the selection
(looks like selection goes to frame instead of characters ?).
Behaviour might depend on the zoom factor or whether the bottom of frame is displayed...

However I found that 'Page down' to go bottom of frame
plus 'line down' to cross frame border
plus 'page down' again, usw, works well.

Well, i do my best !

ok... :-/
