TIP: 78 Configuring the Pages Pane

The default layout of the Pages pane displays a single column of small thumbnail pictures of the pages. The default is fine for most kinds of work when you have a document consisting of several pages. However, when working with a very large document, you might want to make the thumbnails smaller and increase the number of thumbnail columns to see more at once. If you have to be able to see the content of the thumbnails, you'll want to increase their size.

Managing Thumbnails

You can choose to embed or unembed thumbnails. Which is best? Embedded thumbnails add to a file's size. On the other hand, if you embed the thumbnails when you're working with large documents, opening, closing, resizing, and scrolling through the Pages pane is much speedier. Embed thumbnails from the Pages pane by choosing Options > Embed All Page Thumbnails; unembed by choosing Options > Remove Embedded Page Thumbnails.

Be careful when using embedded thumbnails. Although they give you an instant view of the pages, changes you make to your pages are not updated in embedded thumbnails. To display the thumbnails with your changes, you have to unembed the old ones first and then re-embed the edited ones.
