View a document in multiple windows

You can create multiple windows for the same document using the New Window command. New windows have the same size, magnification, and layout as the original window and open at the same page and on top of the original window. When you open a new window, Acrobat adds the suffix 1 to the original filename and assigns the suffix 2 to the new window. You can open multiple windows with the suffix incrementing with each new window. Closing a window causes the remaining open windows to be renumbered sequentially; that is, if you have five windows open and you close the third window that you opened, the windows are renumbered with the suffixes 1 to 4.

Note: This feature is not available when PDFs are viewed in a browser.

Open a new window

 Select Window > New Window.

Close a window

 Click the close box in the window. You are prompted to save any changes. Closing a window does not close a document if more than one window is open.

Close all windows for a document

 Choose File > Close. You are prompted to save any changes before each window is closed.
Set the page layout and orientation

Set the page layout and orientation

Changing the page layout is especially useful when you want to zoom out to get an overview of the document layout. You can use the following page layouts when viewing PDF documents:

Single Page

Displays one page at a time, with no portion on other pages visible.


Single Page Continuous

Displays pages in a continuous vertical column that is one page wide.


Two-Up

Displays each two-page spread with no portion of other pages visible.


Two-Up Continuous

Displays facing pages side by side in a continuous vertical column.


Note: If a document has more than two pages, the Two-Up and Two-Up Continuous views display the first page alone on the right side of the document pane, to ensure proper display of two-page spreads.

Set page layout

  • To see only one page at a time, choose View > Page Display > Single Page.
  • To see two pages at a time, side by side, choose View > Page Display > Two-Up.
  • To scroll down continuously through one page after another, choose View > Page Display > Single Page Continuous.
  • To scroll down continuously through two pages at a time, choose View > Page Display > Two-Up Continuous.

    You can also display buttons for each of these options in the Display Pages toolbar by choosing Tools > Toolbars > More Tools, and selecting them in the More Tools dialog box.

    Note: In Single Page layout, choosing Edit > Select All selects all text on the current page. In other layouts, Select All selects all text in the PDF.

Rotate the page view

You can change the view of a page in 90
