View two pages side by side for print book setup

Post by mang0zine »

There are many things about FreePDF that I really like, but I cannot get my head around the fact that you cannot view documents as a booklet and/or two-page spreads in any easy, meaningful way. Please can you add this relatively basic functionality to the program? - I have previously cancelled my Pro subscription precisely for this reason, and still cannot grasp why a 'View as multiple page spread' option has not been considered essential for this otherwise very adaptive tool.

I have read through these threads multiple times, and still can't see an easy way to have FreePDF display documents in a magazine-style 2-page spread format (with or without separate cover page and last page)... I have tried the Zoom Out tip and many others, but subsequent layout options are still not showing up - what am I missing?

Thanks for your suggestion. I have forwarded this feature request to our developers team.

I am considering investing in FlexiPDF. In using Freepdf, I notice there is no multiple pages to view. That is a deal breaker, for I use it many times in my current program to preview documents pre-publication.

Any idea of when this critical feature will be implemented?

Thanks for your post, but there is no specific plan with a date right now.

Is there any update on this?

As a self-published author who is starting to publish books for other authors as well as my own books, the ability to view a book as a two-page spread is invaluable. Please add this capability. You offer it in TextMaker -- we should be able to view PDFs the same way.

Thank you.
