Bug Description

According to the Help provided by Evince, some navigation features are supposed to work, but don't work.

How to repro: Evince version 3.14.1-0ubuntu1 from Ubuntu 14.10. Open any PDF file. Then:

Help says: "Click the < or > buttons". These buttons are disabled (see attached screenshot, that also shows that the second menu's icon is missing).
Help says: "Press Ctrl+Page Up ..." These keys don't work at all.
Help says: "If you want to see the previously visited pages press < or > on the toolbar.", which is exactly those buttons earlier introduced as "move between pages" (and which don't work).
Help says: "... go to the beginning ... click the File options menu." This menu now has a strange little icon with a wrench but not a name anymore. (granted, this is a Help bug)
Help says: "... go to the beginning Ctrl+Home" This doesn't work. Neither does Ctrl+End, both of which is really annoying.

description: updated

Something that occurred to me today: the navigation is quite fine as long as the user manages to not place the mouse pointer focus at a bad place. Example:

In the zoom menu, click on "Fit Page". Click on the document to close the drop down menu. Ctrl-Home, Ctrl-End are broken.
In the zoom menu, click on "Fit Width", then on the document. Ctrl-Home, Ctrl-End are broken. Click the document again: Ctrl-Home, Ctrl-End are fine.
Back on "Fit Page". Ctrl-Home, Ctrl-End are broken again.

Changed in evince (Ubuntu):

Some extra info, which might be helpful:

If you zoom in enough that a horizontal scroll bar appears, then CTRL-END will scroll right (rather than to the end of the document).
