    Layout lets you change how a document is laid out on your screen.

    The options are:

    • Single - only one page is displayed at any time
    • Double - pages are displayed in pairs
    • Cover - the cover (first) page is displayed, scroll down to see the following pages

    Page transition

    Page transition lets you choose how a document's pages transition when you scroll or pan to another page.

    The options are:

    • Page by page - when you scroll or pan down, the next page will suddenly replace the previous one
    • Continuous - the next page will become visible as you scroll or pan down to the bottom of a previous page

    Other ways to move between pages

    Page Selector

    Use the Pan tool to use your mouse (left-click) to manually move up and down a page and between pages.

    Find the Pan tool on the document's toolbar.
