Full screen view - Title page alone

Post by Auerhahn » Sun Aug 26, 2018 8:41 am

In the »normal« view I can show 2 pages at once and can set the option to show the title page alone, so that in a book the even pages are at the left side, the uneven on the right. In full screen mode I canʼt find this option. is it there and I donʼt see it, or does is not exist in full screen mode? And if not, why not?

The best solution for this, is to assign a keyboard shortcut to the "Show Cover Page in Two Pages View" command:

Something like ALT + S for example.

You can then use this keyboard shortcut while your PDF is shown in Full Screen mode.

Aha! OK. Itʼs a little bit strange because I must assign another shortcut to »2 page view« befor I can use this one, but it works. It would better if ful screen mode would begin with 2 pages when I have this view set in the »normal view» and would have a shortcut or menu to change to title page mode, but…

Anyway. Thank you for the hint.

If you like, the "Two Pages" view is available via the auto-hide toolbar that appears in Full Screen Mode when you move the mouse pointer to the lower left corner of the window.

Maybe Tracker Software Development should consider to add an additional button for "Show Cover Page in Two Pages View".

Hello all,
Willy that is an excellent suggestion, and I have one-upped it to request an option to allow users to choose the default view mode for fullscreen mode within the preferences.
#4466: Add "Default view" option to fullscreen options

Have a good day!

Not yet implemented in build 327.0, but the proposition in ticket #4466 was not exactly what I meant.

I just wanted to add a way to select "Show Cover Page in Two Pages View" in the mini-toolbar in Full Screen Mode.

Best regards.

Hello Willy,
Sorry for that, seems I misunderstood. Ive added in a new ticket in for that case, basically to show pages as 1, 2+3, 4+5, etc:
RT#4510: FR: Show Cover Page in Two Pages View

That numbering scheme should give you the cover page functionality you are looking for, but I also referenced these posts so that they can read the entire conversation.

Have a good day!

Hello Daniel,

I would very much like to back that feature request. I hate it, when the view changes, when I enter full screen mode.
An option like that, would allow me to set it to the same setting as in non-fullscreen mode.

Ideally make it so, that one can choose "Same as in non-fullscreen mode".
I enter fullscreen mode not because I give presentations in front of people, but simply because I temporarily want to have as much screen real estate as possible free from menu and icon bars. Entering fullscreen shouldn't mess about with the configured layout options at all.

Regards
Bernhard Mayer

Hello Bernhard,

Many thanks for adding your detailed reasoning why you need this feature!
The feature request has already been made and will be considered as soon as possible!

Regards,
Stefan
