Selecting the page to view in a PDF document
When you open a PDF document with multiple pages, a single Skim window opens showing the first page of the document. You can see thumbnails of additional pages in the Contents pane on the left.
- To open the left side pane (if it isn't already open), choose View > Show Contents pane, or double-click the divider on the left of the PDF.
- If a PDF has a table of contents (TOC), a TOC icon appears at the top of the left side pane. Click the icon to use the TOC to navigate the PDF.
- To navigate using thumbnail images of the document's pages, click the Thumbnails icon in the contents pane and click the thumbnail image for the page.
- To jump to the next page, press the Down Arrow or Page Down key. To jump to the previous page, press the Up Arrow or Page Up key.
- To use the vertical scroll bar to scroll through a PDF with several pages, choose PDF > PDF Display > Single Page Continuous or PDF > PDF Display > Two Pages Continuous.
- To view a specific page in a PDF document, type the page number that you want to view in the Page Number field in the toolbar, then press Return.
By default, the contents pane always opens automatically. However you can choose to open the contents pane automatically only when the PDF file has a table of contents. To set the contents pane to open automatically only if there is a table of contents, choose Skim > Preferences, click General, and select "Open pane only for Table of Contents."
