Create page thumbnails

Page thumbnails increase file size, so Acrobat does not create them automatically.

Note: Acrobat no longer supports embedding and unembedding page thumbnails. However, Acrobat Distiller® provides an alternate method of embedding page thumbnails.

Create page thumbnails

 Click the Page Thumbnails button on the left.

Page thumbnails appear in the navigation pane. This process may require several seconds, particularly in larger documents. The drawing of page thumbnails may pause if you interact with the application during this process.

Resize page thumbnails

 In the Page Thumbnails panel, choose Reduce Page Thumbnails or Enlarge Page Thumbnails from the options menu . Page thumbnails revert to their default size if you close and reopen the PDF.
