[Noob Alert] I am new to texstudio, having shifted from texshop due to lack of tabs and code folding.

I need to compile two (or more) documents side by side with the tabs. I am unable to view (go to pdf) for one of them if the pdf of the other is active. Using internal pdf viewer.

The solution to this question preseneted in the link below did not work for me TeXstudio and viewing multiple pdf files

  • OK, so can you provide some more details. For example, what operating system and version of TeXstudio do you have? Also, what happens when you try the solution in the suggested dupe? – Joseph Wright Aug 27 '13 at 6:09
  • I use OSX. Texstudio 2.6.2. Turns out Tools --> View is what i wanted. The F7 key did not work since on my system it is used for play previous track. – Ajay Aug 27 '13 at 9:07

    On Macs you have to press the fn-key to get the Fx functionality of the key. – Tim Hoffmann Aug 27 '13 at 16:43

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about use-functions that are specific to that editor rather than TeX-related functions. – percusse Apr 5 '14 at 22:33
