Viewing 2 pages in a PDF file side-by-side

I have a ten page PDF document.

 

I know that I can "break" the window into two stacked views by dragging down the bar at the top of the scroll bar to view two different pages one above the other.

 

However, I want to view pages 2 and 6 side-by-side.

 

How can I do that?

 

Thank you.

 

Cliff

Under the Window menu you have two choices: Split or New Window:

If you use Split you will have one page on top and one page on the bottom. You can view any two pages you like.

If you use New Window you can have the same document side-by-side. This will enable you to have two pages open by moving the two views to differnt parts of you monitor then changing the page of one so they will be different views. You can see on the bottom of the image, I am showing, it says the same name followed by a '1

Save the PDF to a different name. Open both in Acrobat, grap the Tab with the PDF name in it, and drag it over to your desktop. It'll create a new Acrobat window, so you can view two different PDF's side by side.

Thom,

 

I know that I can look at two different PDF files side-by-side. What I want to do is be able to look at two different pages in the same PDF side-by-side.

 

Similar to being able to see two different pages stacked one-on-top of the other by dragging the bar at the top of the scroll bar down to split the window into two scrollable panes inside the window.

 

Thank you.

You can see on the bottom of the image, I am showing, it says the same name followed by a '1' or a '2'. This is becuase it is the same document open in two separate windows. (This is what I think you want)
