How do I display thumbnails of my pages while I edit a document?

I want to have the same view as with the Pages pane in Draw or the Slides pane in Impress.

To have this view, it is necessary to create two windows:

  • open your document;
  • go to File ▸ Page preview;
  • click on the arrow beside the View button;
  • choose the view of pages one above the other;

Modification de l'aperçu

  • reduce the window so that the text will display vertically to the left;
  • go to Window ▸ New window to display the document a second time;
  • close the preview in this new window; and
  • arrange the width of the windows so that you can display the new window next to the other one.

ATTENTION: even if the content is updated in the two windows, the two displays are not synchronised.
