A New PDF Viewing Trick


Today a user asked me if he could view two PDFs side by side in full screen mode, so that both documents could be displayed without surrounding toolbars or buttons. I thought about it for a second and then realized, “Hmmmm…yes, you can do this in Revu 8.5!”

You see, last month in addition to debuting great real-time collaboration features, we added a Full Screen mode into Revu 8.5. Here, let me show you…

You can start by splitting the view using our MultiView technology (which enables you to display up to 16 views or PDFs side by side).

Then go to View/Full Screen (or use keyboard shortcut F11).

To customize the floating toolbar right-click on it and select “Customize.”

Alternatively, you can start by viewing a single PDF in Full Screen mode, then use keyboard shortcut Ctrl+2 to split the view vertically, or Ctrl+H to split the view horizontally.

To choose which PDFs to display in which view, hover over the top of the interface to display the PDF tabs.

You can even open PDFs or create new ones from within Full Screen mode. Just right-click in the gray space above the PDF.

To exit Full Screen mode, press the leave button on the floating toolbar, which you can customize by going to View/Toolbars/Customize.

Do you have a feature question?  Let me know and I just may answer it here on the blog. And remember, to keep on PDFin’!
