1. Multiple Modes to View PDF

PDF documents can be viewed in different ways in UPDF, such as single-page, two-page, and with or without the scrolling option.

To change the page view mode, you can click the "View" and select the "Page Display" option. And then choose the appropriate mode:

  • Single Page View: View PDF pages one at a time.
  • Two Page View: View PDF pages like a book - side by side.
  • Single Page Scrolling/Two Page Scrolling: Both views offer a scrolling option that makes for a better reading experience.

You will enter into slideshow mode. UPDF provides a Pen tool in the bottom-left corner of the interface. This pen tool acts like a laser pointer during your presentation and you can point to the section where you want to emphasize.
