Multiple documents in parallel view

You can view two or more PDF documents side-by-side in Nitro Pro without needing to use two screens, and without running another copy of the application.

You can view, edit, scroll, rotate, and zoom PDF documents in parallel views independently.

TIP: To resize the portions in this “split screen” view mode, click and drag the dividing line between parallel views.

To create two or more parallel views:

  1. Open two documents you wish to view in Nitro Pro

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Drag and drop a document tab away from the tab bar

    • Right-click on a document tab

  3. In the menu, select one of the following:

    • New Horizontal Tab Group: Presents the documents in a horizontally parallel view

    • New Vertical Tab Group: Presents the documents in a vertically parallel view

  4. If you want to create more parallel views, open another PDF document, and repeat steps 2 and 3

TIP: When you have parallel views in Nitro Pro and open a new PDF file, the document is placed in the same tab group as the last active tab.

Move a PDF document between tab groups

To use a right-click to move a PDF document to another tab group:

  1. Right-click the tab of the PDF document you want to move

  1. In the menu, select one of the following:

    • Move to Previous Tab Group: joins the PDF document to the tab group opened before it

    • Move to Next Tab Group: joins the PDF document to the tab group opened after it

To drag and drop a PDF document to other tab group:

  1. Click the tab of the PDF document you want to move

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Drag and drop the tab onto the tab bar of another tab group

    • Drag and drop the tab away from the tab bar, and then select Move to Previous Tab Group or Move to Next Tab Group from the menu

To revert to the normal view:

Do one of the following:

  • Move all the open PDF documents into the same tab group

  • Close all the documents, leaving only one PDF document open

  • Exit and restart Nitro Pro, and it will display the standard view
