Hi Sajit,

Thanks for reaching out, as described above, you want to open another PDF file in a new tab under the same window, correct?

Please try the following steps:

  • Go to Edit (Windows), Adobe Reader / Adobe Acrobat DC (Mac) > Preferences > General > Select, Open documents as new tabs in the same window > OK
  • Restart the application and check.

Let us know if that works for you.

Regards,

Amal

Dear Amal,

That preference, I have already selected and it is working.

I want to open 2 instances of the same document. Let us instance 1 will show the paragraph body and instance 2 will show the reference list of drawings.

Is this possible. If not can you please request a feature?

Sajit

Hi: Amal

Yes! This is work on newer version. But how about in older version as Acrobat XI (11). Can't find that check box at General? Some where else?

Acrobat XI doesn't have the tabs feature.
