Tip: If you're using the wall-running purple triangles in your hack, remember to add tile 1EB (or a tile that acts like tile 1EB) underneath it. Extended object 44/45 will include this tile for you.Not logged in.

pressing the shift key in any of those combinations just moves the selected graphic up or down but not the page. I tried both Fn and Alt keys and various combos such as the ones you mentioned and others in this thread. I also tried without shift and it just doesn't do anything
What do you mean it moves the selected graphics up or down? Are you in the 8x8 editor #lm{8x} or the 16x16 editor #lm{16x}?

Can you post a screenshot of Lunar Magic and the window you have open
I am using the 8x8 editor here is the screenshots, in one of them the graphic is shifted down multiple times and the other is it in default state
Ok I think this confirms you are pressing Ctrl+Shift+down arrow NOT Ctrl+Shift+PgDN.

I feel like I need to explain a bit more pressing up or down as in up arrow or down arrow will move the graphics page up and down while page up and page down will change the palette however when we've all said Ctrl+Shift+PageDown we mean the actual button Page Down or PgDn not the down arrow.
I am not actually pressing the down arrow key on the keyboard, it just shifts the graphic when I do ctrl + shift + the pgdn button in lunar magic or any button combo with the shift key in it
Where is the page down key located on your keyboard
One thing to note: Page Up and Page Down should switch the palettes, not the pages. So it really could have been that you accidently pressed Ctrl+Shift+Down instead of Ctrl+Shift+PgDn.

Okay, my layout looks ugly.
this is my arrow key section:
I am pressing the pgdn button that moves the page down in the lunar magic editor.

You're probably not actually pressing pgdn then. That small text indicates an alternate function of the key; assuming you have an "fn" modifer key on your keyboard, you need to be holding that as well to activate it.

So in other words, the proper key combo for you should be Ctrl + Shift + Fn + Down arrow.

That explains everything.
First off: This isn't even a Lunar Magic issue! It's rather an issue with how the keyboard works as PgDn is just mapped onto the same key as the down key except you access it with the Fn key (I know this because my laptop for work has PgDn mapped that way). On a standard keyboard, PgUp and PgDn are actually separate buttons but on a compact laptop, you likely have to use Fn keys to access them. It's certainly where the confusion stems, hence my previous post that PgUp and PgDn change the palette. On the other hand, — and this is to explain what you actually pressed — Up and Down are the keys which change the pages, not PgUp and PgDn.

To explain what I mean: Open up a TXT file with many lines and check what happens when you press Up and Down without and with Fn. If you see the cursor jumps a single line, you pressed the up and down keys, if you see the cursor jumps multiple lines, you pressed PgUp and PgDn.

Long story short: The correct key combination on your end is Fn+Ctrl+Shift+Down. If that doesn't work then you pressed too many keys. The alternative is to force Fn keys or use the screen keyboard with a more traditional keyboard layout (should be included with most desktop environments).

Okay, my layout looks ugly.
Ctrl + shift + Fn + down arrow worked!! thanks so much, I would've never figured that out on my own.
