Using Acrobat palettes

Acrobat provides palettes to help you organize and keep track of a document's bookmarks, thumbnails, annotations, signatures, articles, and destinations. Palettes can be docked inside the navigation pane or floated in windows over the work area. They can also be grouped with other palettes. This section introduces the navigation pane and shows you how to display palettes. As you work through the lessons, you'll learn more about each palette's specific function.

Displaying palettes

You can display palettes in a variety of ways. Experiment with several techniques:

  • To show or hide the navigation pane as you work, click the Show/Hide Navigation Pane button () in the command bar, the Navigation Pane button () in the status bar, or the left border of the document pane.

  • To show or hide a palette, choose the palette's Show or Hide command from the Window menu. The palette appears in the navigation pane or in a floating window.

Changing the palette display

You can change the palette display in a variety of ways. Experiment with several techniques:

  • To change the width of the navigation pane while it's visible, drag its right border.

  • To bring a palette to the front of its group, click the palette's tab.



  • To move a palette to its own floating window, drag the palette's tab to the document pane.



  • To move a palette to another group, drag the palette's tab to the other group.

  • To display a palette menu, hold down the mouse button on the triangle in the upper right corner of the palette. Tohide a palette menu without making a selection, click in the blank space in the navigation pane.
