Hi @AnPham,

Thanks for posting on our community forums!

You are most likely on an older build of Nitro Pro 11. The newest build opens files in another tab (within the same window).

Please download the latest version and update your copy:

I hope this helps.

This is one of my biggest irritations with Nitro. I often want to be able to open separate windows (so I can few files on different monitors), but I've been told it's impossible, and that I can only open new tabs in the same window. The only way to compare files side by side to  is to create vertical tab groups, which is not really what I'd like to do.

If you work out how you were able to open two windows, even accidentally, I'd really like to know what you did!

This is now a feature in Nitro 11- it's referenced in 11.05.271's release notes:

Enhanced Multi-Window Management

Nitro Pro now allows you to drag out a document from one window to create another instance of Nitro Pro – similar to ripping out tabs in popular internet browsers

Individual pages can be dragged from one document and inserted into another document in a different instance of Nitro Pro

A large number of Nitro Pro instances can be created to view and edit PDF documents

 

If you can't get that to work, let me know- you may need to change or add a registry key.

I'm afraid it doesn't work for me. I get the error "Error popping out document.....new instance of NitroPDF failed to start", although an empty Nitro window does (eventually, after a loooooong wait) open, but does not take the document with it.

This gives rise to another issue I have about keeping Nitro up to date. It doesn't update (or advise of updates) automatically. I DID do a manual update at the end of last year, and also read the release notes, but this update leap-frogged over other updates, including the one that implemented these changes. I had not updated since the original installation in the April last year, so I never saw the addition of this "feature" (also despite a support tech telling they would tell me if it was ever implemented after I complained it was missing)

Hi guys,

Thank you for your messages.

We have temporarily disabled the automatic updates and the Check for Updates tool, while we are trying to fix an issue connected to this.
In the meantime, you can get updates from here: https://www.gonitro.com/support/downloads

Whilst Nitro is closed (using build 11.05.271 and up), if you open Windows Explorer and select multiple PDFs, then press Enter, they will open in multiple windows.

To know more about Multiple-Window Workflow In Nitro Pro 11, kindly visit this link:

I hope this helps.

Cheers!

I'm trying out Nitro Pro 11 and the version is 11.0.3.173.  I need to compare 2 pdf documents in separate windows.  Under Check for Updates, program reports "There are no updates available. You have the latest version of Nitro Pro installed."

I'm trying out Nitro Pro 11 and the version is 11.0.3.173.  I need to compare 2 pdf documents in separate windows.  When I try to drag a document from a tab to a blank area on the desktop, there is a no-go universal symbol (circle with diagonal line) and nothing happens.  Under Check for Updates, program reports "There are no updates available. You have the latest version of Nitro Pro installed."

Does anyone know if It is possible to view a single document in two instances?  For example by creating 2 tab groups and viewing the same document with one instance in each group, either vertically or horizontally?

... or viewing the same document in two windows?

This is different than opening 2 different documents in 2 separate windows.

Seems like a common need to be able to look at one page while referring to another page/section in the same document but it could just me because I read long technical stuff that has tables/reference stuff in one area that is referred to in a different area. Just like my obsoleted paper books!

I can do this by creating a copy of the document/renaming it, then opening each document as if they were separate documents but then the copied document needs to be deleted later.

Thanks,   Jim :D
