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.

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."
