This is the perfect place for this question.

Trying this out in Win7 and 1.5.2 (desktop), I don't see the problem
with the pointer.
I do see that neither PgDn or arrow keys work, though. What does work
with a mouse is the scrollwheel, so you might try the scrolling area of
the trackpad to see if that works. Otherwise, try clicking on the next
page arrow at the bottom of the Scribus window, even if it doesn't
change to a pointer.

Seems odd, wonder if this is some Win 10 issue...


Thanks, Greg. The idea about clicking on the next page at the bottom of the Scribus works!
