Question: QuickLook Scrolling Options

I just updated to High Sierra and now when I use QuickLook to preview a multi-page PDF it is set as a continuous scroll. I can use the page up/dwn buttons to move through the pages, but I would really really really REALLY like the ability to choose my scrolling method. Is there an option somewhere to be able to put this back the way it was before? My Preview preferences are set to this option... I don't know why it would not carry that option over from there.

MacBook Pro with Retina display, macOS High Sierra (10.13.3)

Thank you for the reply! Sorry, I must not have been too clear about what is going on.

In the old version of OSX that I was using, 10.11, when I would scroll (using the scroll wheel on my mouse) on a QuickLook PDF it would advance page-by-page; one page at a time. Now, when I scroll post update to HighSierra, it continuously scrolls. I have figured out that I can advance page by page by using the page up/dwn keys on my keyboard, but my preference is to use the mouse wheel to accomplish this instead and I am wondering if there is a place to set the option. Based on my research, it seems there is not, but I was hoping someone on here might know a way to get it done.

Again, thank you for your reply!
