CIsco ASA Command Question

When I do a show config on an ASA, the config may require me to press ENTER or SPACE BAR several times.  Once I see what I want, is there a key or escape sequence I can type to get back to the area where I can enter commands, as opposed to viewing more of the config.

i'm not sure about the ASA, but with routers and switches, you can use: ctrl+shift+6 twice (quickly)

This works for trace too.
