I'm reading a pdf which use lot of link to other passage within the same pdf.

Since the applicaiton doesn't have "go back" feature, I have to remember the page number and go back manually after I follow any link.

It would be nice to have such feature.

 

I use iPad.

Thank you for your tip. I've read through what you refered.

I didn't know I could do "go to page" by clicking scrub icon. It will be very useful. thank you.

But still there was no "go back" equivalent feature.

If you press and release the scrub icon it will also give you the option to go back to the last visited page in that document like shown in the slide below:

You can also select a different page views, like page by page, continuous   pages scrolling, or reading mode:

And you also can switch to thumbnail view to fine grain your searches visually:

Last, if your document has comments and bookmarks, you can also use those searching abilities or search by content.

By pressing and holding the scrb icon you can slide it up or down, left to right (depending on where you want the scrub icon positioned in a selected page view),  which allows super fast scrolling through every page  in your document.

Thank you for all the details.

But it looks like it's for only android application.

I can't find it in iPad application.

Yes, you're welcome.

 

 I am curious if the problem is because your iPad is defauled to use the native PDF viewer and not you Acrobat mobile app.

 

I recreated your scenario and in Android there is a native app called Drive.

 

I opened a PDF document without knowing it was the Drive app and neither did I could find the features you're looking for..

 

See if you need to default your Acrobat mobile app to open PDFs documents automatically and not another built-in app provided in iPadOS.

I'm using most recent version of Adobe Acrobat Reader developed by Adobe Inc. 

I think they just didn't add the feature to iPad version.
