Provided you have the developer tools installed, you could add them to 
the menu in the appropriate .nib file (that is hard-wire them). You 
have to add a command-key combination in that case.

Didn't you also ask about a single page down and at the same time move 
the insertion point keyboard combination? Most of the emacs keyboard 
shortcuts work in all Cocoa text applications, including TeXShop and 

 From the web I grabbed this list:

C-p   previous line
C-n   next line
C-b   back one character
M-b   back one word
C-f   forward one character
M-f   forward one word
C-f   beginning of line
M-<   start of buffer
M->   end of buffer
C-v   page down
M-v   page up

C-v stands for: hold down the control key and press 'v'.
M-v stands for: hold down the alt/option key and press 'v'.

Somehow this list is incorrect (C-f does not go to the start of the 
line), but the pages movement works perfectly.
