Always open a PDF in the same interface w/thumbnails open (lost from Ver X)
In acrobat X you could set the program to always open PDFs with thumbnails open and page view next to it.
Tech support told me the added the "feature" of removing that setting. and replacing it with file-by-file interface settings. That's a loss of functionality.
I get many PDFs from outside sources and I have to integrate pages from them into other documents, for which I need two acrobat windows open with thumbnails showing so I can drag-and-drop pages.
Thus every single one of those new files I have to manually re-open the thumbnails, because my Acrobat has never see the file before.
Truly good functionality would allow the user to choose between the two options.
1-Overrule document opening settings and show "x" interface
2- Open document in last interface state from document.
Sorry fot the inconvenience caused to you.
You can still achieve your desired outcome by following below mentioned steps.
1) Open a pdf file.
2)Open another file and drag the tab out such that you have two pdfs in two different windows side by side.
3) From the thumbnail view for both windows.
4) Now you can drag your desired page from one file to another and integrate pages.
