I have hundreds of PDF files that I would like to browse through rather rapidly while viewing them at (nearly) full-screen, preferably while zoomed in to a particular area. What I need is the functionality that
eog has for bitmaps: to look at the PDF, press →, and switch immediately to the next PDF, preferably while keeping the viewing coordinates (e.g. zoom in lower left part of the PDF). Each PDF has one page and contains a data visualisation.
One option would be to convert all the PDFs to PNG, then use
eog. This is suboptimal, because it will turn the pages into bitmaps. Another option would be to merge them all into one big file. This is suboptimal, because each individual file is 1.8 MiB, and I'm going to have many hundreds of files. I could choose some hybrid solution. However, my question is: is it possible to browse through the individual PDFs directly? I'm on Ubuntu.
The solution presented in Quickly view PDF files in directory is not useful for me, because the preview will be too small.
