  • Chrome 87: Revamped PDF user interface

    Google continues to plan for a new PDF viewer user interface (UI) in November’s Chrome 87.

    When a user opens a PDF document, a toolbar will appear under the new UI that concentrates previous functions — such as zooming in and out on the document — as well as new options, such as the current page number and a fit-to-width command. The new viewer will also include a two-up view — two pages, shown side by side, the document’s table of contents and a mode to see added annotations. Chrome 86, which launched last week, does not include the new viewer UI, but will display most of it after a setting an option in the chrome://flags page. Users should search for “viewer” to find the #pdf-viewer-update item, set it to “Enabled” on the right and relaunch the browser.

    When Computerworld set that flag, the view UI switched on, with one caveat: The thumbnails of each page — those thumbnails were displayed in a sidebar at the left — remained blank, no matter which PDF was opened.
