The parallel view allows you to read two or more PDF files side-by-side (either horizontally or vertically) in the same window, instead of creating multiple instances.
When reading PDF files in the parallel view, you can view, annotate, or modify each PDF file independently. However, the Read Mode and Full Screen Mode operations are simultaneously applied to PDF files that are currently active in all tab groups.
To create the parallel view, do the following:
Open two or more documents that you want to view in Foxit PDF Editor. Right-click on the file tab of the PDF document that you want to move to a new tab group, and choose one of the following options as needed:
➢ New Horizontal Tab Group: Display the PDF document in a horizontally
➢ New Vertical Tab Group: Display the PDF document in a vertically parallel
The PDF document will be displayed in a new tab on a split-screen within the same instance. If necessary, you can click and drag the dividing line between the parallel view to resize the portion of the split-screen.
While navigating PDFs in the parallel view, you can scroll the mouse or use the shortcut key to switch between file tabs within the same tab group.
Tip: If you are in the parallel view, when a new PDF file is opened, it will be placed in the last active tab group.
To move tabs in the parallel view, do one of the following:
➢ Directly drag and drop the file tab to the tab group that you want the PDF document to be moved into.
➢ Right-click the file tab, and choose Move to Next Tab Group to move the PDF file to the tab group that is opened after it, or choose Move to Previous Tab Group to move the PDF file to the tab group that is opened before it.
To exit the parallel view, do one of the following:
➢ Close all PDF documents to leave only one opened.
➢ Move all the opened PDF files to the same tab group.
➢ Close Foxit PDF Editor, and it will return to the normal view when reopened.
