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
