I'd just say "there are commands".

                     ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This makes the sentence ambiguous: it is not clear whether "upward"
goes with "scroll" or with "select".  Either say "scrolls upward" at
the beginning of the sentence, or maybe explain the "upward" part in a
separate sentence (and what does "upward" mean here anyway -- does the
text or the viewport move upward?).

Thanks.
