In Google Chrome, is it possible to get the current page number of a pdf document (the page that I'm viewing)? I have a document that is over 100 pages long, and I can't find the currently viewed page number anywhere.

I guess you want to do this so you can print the currently viewed page? Is there a Print Preview option you can use that perhaps displays page numbers? – Karan Oct 10 '12 at 17:45
@Karan Yes, that's one reason why it would be useful to obtain the current page, but it's not the only reason. These are distinct questions. – Anderson Green Oct 10 '12 at 18:04

As @Karan says, select the print button and in the print preview screen you will notice a hovering tooltip by the scroll bar that indicates the current page.

Thanks, I didn't notice this before. Is it possible to quickly jump to a specific page on the print preview screen? – Anderson Green Oct 10 '12 at 18:06
There's only one problem with this: When I click "Print", the print preview page shows the first page instead of the page that I was viewing. When I'm viewing a document with over 100 pages, this makes it very difficult to find the page that I was viewing. – Anderson Green Oct 10 '12 at 18:09
@AndersonGreen If you type a page number in the Pages section it jumps directly to the page. – Vian Esterhuizen Oct 10 '12 at 18:18
Where can I find the pages section? – Anderson Green Oct 10 '12 at 18:24
@AndersonGreen On the left side of the screen. It says Pages with a radio button for All or a radio button for an input box with "eg. 1-5, 8, 11-13". If you put the the page number in the input box, the PDF will jump to said page. – Vian Esterhuizen Oct 10 '12 at 18:27
