Score editor computer keyb. note entry: Page Up/Down key has to be pressed twice

In Cubase Score editor when entering notes with the computer keyboard in the next octave above or below the current one, it is necessary to press the page up/ page down key twice instead of once.
On page 60 of the Cubase pro 11 Score PDF manual it says:
“Use the Page Up/Page Down key to transpose the note in octave steps”.
It is not mentioned that you have to do it twice, which is anyhow odd and cumbersome.
This bug has been in Cubase for many years

Yes it has always worked this way. And I agree, it is not right.
I will report this.

Note: if you press Enter right after Page Up/Down, the displayed note is entered at the correct pitch though.
