Page right / left for Panafall?

I would enjoy having a "page right" button at the bottom of the waterfall on my Maestro, just to the left of "Meters" and a "Page left" button just to the right of the "<Display" button. E.g. Clicking "Page Right" would change the display from showing 14.000 / 14.013 to showing 14.013 / 14.026. Somewhat faster and more positive than dragging one's finger horizontally across the entire screen. Sometimes I'm not careful & get my finger in the frequencies and end up changing the spacing & have to change back etc.

Thoughts?

Hi Ken,
Good idea, sounds like a nice feature and it would be helpful on the Windows SSDR GUI as well.  It would be much faster to scan a few pages than dragging.  Here is a mockup below.  I don't want to hijack your Maestro idea so if you would prefer I can write it up separately.  

Since some people don't like additional buttons on the screen, the PAGE LEFT / RIGHT buttons could be enabled / disabled in the settings menu.

Hijack away! No pride of authorship here. I did cross-post (I think) the idea on the Windows and IOS forums as well.

Good idea! My thought is that the paging should go beside the "S B - +", on the Maestro these time out. In other words touch the Maestro screen anywhere and the page forward and back buttons appear, then they fade away if not used in so many seconds.

That sounds good! However Flex decides to implement it (if they do), I'm sure it will be aesthetically pleasing.
