Windows 7: Q: Foxit Reader - multiple documents - tiled view

Q: Foxit Reader - multiple documents - tiled view

How can I get Foxit Reader v3.31 to display two documents side-by-side (i.e. "tiled"). The Tile choices are greyed out here and I cannot see how to select "Multiple Document interface mode" (or "Single Document interface mode" either).

If you already have a PDF file open and then you double-click another PDF file, it will be opened in the same window. The single document interface mode enables you to open multiple instances of Foxit Reader. Foxit Reader will create a new window when you double-click to open a new PDF file, which is very useful for viewing different files side by side. The multiple document interface mode sets multiple documents under a single parent window, as opposed to all windows being separated from each other (single document interface). In order to view a list of windows open in Foxit Reader, the user typically has to click on the Restore Down button at the top right corner of the Foxit Reader window.

@DarkStar GT - Foxit Reader Tiling?

Hi Darkstar,

You seem to have found a solution how to add a tiling/cascading support to Foxit Reader but your link takes me to an error page. Would you still remember how to do it?

The link to your thread is Q: Foxit Reader - multiple documents - tiled view

Thanks!

Welcome to Seven Forums martJan. It looks like the path now would be

File > Preferences > Documents > Uncheck Tabbed documents

You can also open multiple instances of Foxit as well

File > Preferences > Documents > Check Allow Multiple Instances

I can't confirm as I use Sumatra

Thank you, A Guy. The trouble is that the 'Allow Multiple' approach leaves you with two independent windows while I would love to have my files arranged/tiled side by side, with synchronized scrolling as possible, the same way as what you can have in Acrobat or MS Office. No 'Tabbed documents' checkbox here. Never mind, will try to get by and if it comes to the worst, I will bite the bullet and go back to Acrobat

Thanks anyway!

According to Foxit, it's not supported. Sorry about that

Hmm, well that link was from 4 years ago - when I was using an earlier version of Foxit Reader. Maybe Foxit "tidied" the forum threads. But, from my previous reply, I'm sure I had it working back then.

No "Uncheck Tabbed documents" choice here either (v6.1.4).
