I saw that AR9 under Linux offers tabbing (opening several files under the same window with each having a tab of its own).

Does such an option exist for the Windows version?

(I'm using WinXP with AR 9.2.0)

What's the version number of your AR9. The Windows one is at 9.2.0 – ChrisF Dec 6 '09 at 14:30
My version is 9.2.0 – Shaihi Dec 6 '09 at 14:34
PDF-Xchange Viewer does that ... and much more: – Molly7244 Dec 6 '09 at 16:04
@Molly - Thanks I'll give it a look – Shaihi Dec 6 '09 at 16:29

I don't think this option is available in the Windows version. As I mentioned in my comment I have version 9.2.0 installed and can't find any options or preferences for opening in tabs rather than new windows.

Is there an option to open all the PDFs under the same window? It used to exist in version 8, but I am not sure about 9. – Shaihi Dec 6 '09 at 14:46

I don't know about Acrobat Reader, but Foxit Reader is a freeware pdf viewer that opens multiple pdf in tabs. It seems a bit quicker to open documents than AR as well.

I know it's not a solution to the AR problem, but it is an alternative option...

this is not an answer to the question (as you know), make this a comment and avoid downvoting. – Molly7244 Dec 6 '09 at 16:11
I am familiar with Foxit. Thanks, but I find it has several disadvantages. – Shaihi Dec 6 '09 at 16:29
