By default TexStudio's preview window shows all pages in a single column. Is there a setting to make it show 2 pages side by side? Ideal would be a book preview just like offered by Sumatra PDF viewer.

I cannot find any according option nor setting. However, I'd like to make sure that I did not miss anything!

It is possible if you pop out the viewer. After doing this you see a new menu bar. enter image description here

This one offers View -> Grid. If you choose 2x1 you get a booklike preview. Make sure Single Page Step is unchecked, to get proper scrolling.

  • And can it show animations? Or only Acrobat can?
