Is it possible to have TeXStudio to display PDF file side by side with the source code just like TeXMaker? I am asking this since their user interfaces are very similar, hinting that we should have the same functionality in TeXStudio also. At the moment when I press quick build it views the PDF file in a separate window.

Thanks in advance

  • ACtually TeXStudio is a fork derived from TeXMaker, and for a time it was called TeXMakerX. In my own experience the embedded viewer is the default option. Didn you changed it or customized TeXStudio? – Aradnix Dec 14 '13 at 21:49
  • I have been using TeXStudio mostly with default settings. The launched program is its own PDF viewer but it opens a new window. I want to see the source code and the PDF side by side. – Vesnog Dec 14 '13 at 21:59
  • I preffer to use it in a new window because my screen is small. Well take a look in the menu Visualize and select the option Show embedded PDF small. This should fix your troubles. Tell if if it works or not. – Aradnix Dec 14 '13 at 22:12
  • The menu Visualize is not available in my edition (2.3) of TeXStudio I presume. How can I change this setting? – Vesnog Dec 14 '13 at 22:34
  • 2.3??? oh boy that's quite old. Hmm well maybe not so much but you should upgrade it. My version is the 2.6.6. I'm no expert TeXStudio user, I have more experience with Texmaker (since version 1.9) but may help to upgrade your version. – Aradnix Dec 14 '13 at 22:40

2.6.6 is the latest TexStudio Version. At the top left of an open pdf view, there is an icon that shows a split window. Click on that and you'll get the side-by-side view you ask for.

  • I tried installing it but I ran into additional problems related with dictionaries – Vesnog Dec 15 '13 at 10:42
  • @Vesnog Feel free to ask a follow-up question about that as a new question. – doncherry Dec 15 '13 at 12:42

    Is there a way to do that as default? – user50358 Jul 8 '14 at 16:29
  • @user50358 Yes, see my anser. – dexteritas May 17 '18 at 9:55

In 2.7.0, click on "View" and the click on "Show embedded PDF small".

In TexStudio "2.11.2" click on "Tools" > "View" or F7 to enable the pdf side window.

In 2.10.8 you can set the windowed preview as default under options -> Configure TexStudio.... Goto tab Build and change PDF Viewer to Internal PDF Viewer (Windowed) or to Internal PDF Viewer (Embedded)
