I have a button with popMenu options. When I select this one option (it opens three external pdf docs). What I'd like to do is, is to have each of the three docs open and fan across the screen instead of piling up to the left or center. I went into the Properties window of each doc and selected "resize", "center" and "hide window controls". This fine and the right size. But, I was wondering how to not have the three docs in a pile but have them open left, center and right? They didn't give us that option when Acrobat X pro was created. Any suggestions as to doing what I'd like to do?

Thanks for the reply. I didn't think it was possible, but it would have been so simple to include in the Properties pane. Open Center is an option and the Default is to the Left. How hard would it have been to make Open to the Right an option? Maybe in the future versions.

I didn't test it, but it might be possible by executing the Tile command

from the Window menu, using execMenuItem.

how so? I just want it to happen when I open the docs. I thought, maybe, it could be done with a script.
