Shift + Spacebar to cycle backward in openbox

So hey, pressing the spacebar allows you to cycle forward, for example through a man page in the terminal; where would you configure shift + spacebar to cycle backward in openbox? And would this carry over to other applications, for instance, a picture viewer (in my case, gpicviewer)?

That is something that cannot be controlled through openbox.  You would have to be looking at custmizing the pager itself.  I think the the case of the man pages the more pager is used.  If you want to provide custom keyboard shortcuts to openbox, you would have to learn how to edit the rc.xml file.  This should be in ~/.config/openbox.  Once you give it a good lookover, it is pretty easy.  The openbox web site also has excellent documentation on this as well.  It is actually extemely versatile in this area.
