11.3. View two PDFs side by side

On your iPad with iOS 11 or later, you can easily work with two apps at the same time. For example, you can view two PDFs side by side by opening PDF Expert 7 and Documents at once. Split View is also convenient for moving files between apps with drag & drop.

How to use Split View on your iPad:

  1. Open PDF Expert 7.
  2. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open the Dock.
  3. On the Dock, touch and hold the second app you want to open and drag it off the dock.

How to adjust Split View:

  • To give the apps equal space on the screen, drag the app divider to the center of the screen.
  • To turn a Split View into a Slide Over, swipe down from the top of the app.
  • To close Split View, drag the app divider over the app you want to close.

To make sure Split View works on your iPad, please open the Settings app. Go to General > Multitasking & Dock and check if the Allow Multiple Apps toggle is on.

You can use Split View with iPad Pro, iPad (5th generation and later), iPad Air 2 and later, or iPad mini 4 and later.
