Having difficulties with the internal reader

When using the Alfa ereader, there are many things that I'm used to being able to do in ereader apps that I don't seem to be able to accomplish.

- Simply reading through a book is frustrating. Dedicated PageDown / PageUp keys move you through chapters instead of their primary labeled function. The spacebar, which works in Calibre / Adobe Reader/ web browsers etc, doesn't move to the next page in the Alfa reader.
- So I must resort to the arrow keys, but shouldn't the down arrow move me down the page(?) I don't understand the logic of having the up arrow for 'next page'.
- Why can't you copy selected text? I don't seem to be able to.
- Why doesn't Alt-F4 work to close the window?

I really would love spacebar for advancing pages and the ability to copy selected text. I know we have the option to turn off the internal reader, so I'll probably swap to using Sumatra Reader in the meantime. Thanks.
