Are you certain about that?

Ctrl-C = Page down
Ctrl-X = Line down
Ctrl-P = not on WS

One way to remember this is to look at the keyboard and visualize a
"diamond" of keys; center is S and D for character left and right,
Below is X for line down, above is E for line up.

Similarly, next to X you have C, for page down, Next to E is R, for page up.

And so on...
