Hi,

I cannot find any key shortcut to switch between tabs in adobe acrobat reader in full screen mode. In regular mode key combination ctrl + tab works fine, but in full screen doesn't. Can you help me with that?

Hi There,

I understand the situation, as you are looking to switch the tabs in full-screen mode. Unfortunately, this option is not available as once we are in a full-screen mode we are focusing on a particular document at a time. In the regular mode, you can open multiple files in different tabs.

If you are in a presentation and want the two documents to appear as continuous pages you can try to merge the two PDF files into a single document.

Let us know if this works for you.

Regards,

Amal

I disagree. "Focusing on one particular document" is besides the point. I often need to switch between documents, which requires leaving full-screen mode, switching tabs. and re-entering full-screen mode. The unnecessary change between modes wastes time and is visually quite jarring. It's especially annoying on my tablet, where I have to use the tiny menu to switch back to full-screen. All of this take my focus away from my task of comparing and constrasting multiple documents.

Please strongly consider the feature request of allowing tab switching in full-screen. I'm sure your engineers can find a clever way to make it work with touch, too (instead of just ctrl-tab).

Please do your best to fully support as many functions as possible in full-screen mode. My eyes will thank you!

Agreed - full screen mode is very useful for reviewing and presenting documents, and being able to switch between tabs in this mode would be invaluable.

 

It is ofcourse, possible to switch between multiple instances of adobe acrobat running full screen using Alt+TAB. Though ofcourse, is is not as seamless as using Ctrl+TAB to move between tabs, particularly where you have numerous documents you need to move in and out of

You can't switch using Alt+TAB. The second document opened is blank.

I love the challenge of figuring out a slick solution, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do this. I'll keep poling away to see if there's a way, though!
