Hi Siddharthagupta,

As per the query mentioned above if I understand correctly, you are willing to view two pages view in full screen mode?

If yes, then you may follow the steps mentioned below-

  • Open Acrobat Reader DC> Edit> Preferences (Ctrl+k)> Full Screen> Uncheck "Fill screen with one page at a time">OK
  • View(Upper left corner)> Page Display> Check "Two Page View"
  • Open document> View (upper left corner)> Full Screen Mode

Hope this is what you were looking for?

Regards,

Akanchha

This is a problem I've wrestled with for years!! But why oh why is this even an option?!

 

If I select View > Page Display > Two Page View, I explicitly and deliberately instruct Acrobat Reader to display the pages as spreads. Why on earth would Acrobat then decide to default back to single pages, as soon as I select full screen mode? It makes no sense. I've never even considered that this could be an option in the preferences, simply because it defies all logic.

 

I work in the comic book industry and I read a lot of comics and graphic novels using Acrobat Reader, as do many of my peers. Because many comic books are printed on a larger format (like A4) and/or use small handwritten lettering, displaying the pdf on the largest size possible is often necessary for comfortable reading. In contrast to regular novels, many comic books and graphic novels contain spreads that need to be read and/or viewed as a whole. I can assure you that this 'option' creates a lot of irritation in this community and hardly anyone knows it can be switched off.

 

Since it serves no purpose other than to create confusion and irritation, would it perhaps be possible for Adobe to deprecate this option and allow users to control this feature simply using Page Display, as you would expect?
