Hide thumbnails when reading a PDF on an iPad


Learn how to hide a PDF’s thumbnails by opening it in the Books app on the iPad.

If you’ve ever opened a PDF on an iPad, you may have noticed that the thumbnails show on the left. While this can be handy to see what page you are looking at or looking for, when you are reading a PDF, it can be in the way. How can you remove it? One way is to open the PDF in the Books app on the iPad. The advantage to this is it then syncs across all our devices in the Books app, you can bookmark pages, and you can markup a PDF with an Apple Pencil. It also adds it to the PDF Collection in the Books app automatically. See how to open a PDF in the Books app in this video for the iPad.
