HI Martin,

What I find is that, in a Facing Pages layout, the Page Up/Page Down keys move 2 pages - 1-3-5-7-etc or 2-4-6-8.
If you are starting on an odd page, you stick with odd pages. The slight workaround is to use the mouse cursor to go from evens to odds.
So, for example, say you are on page 3 but you want to go to page 6. Use the mouse cursor to select page 2 as the current page (don't worry about moving the view to page 2). Now when you use PageDown, you jump to 4, 6, etc., and the view shifts over to center these pages. So the selected page determines whether you are moving from evens to evens or odds to odds.
