When you open a PDF file in PDF Expert for Mac in the upper part of the screen, you’ll see the upper toolbar which contains the main preferences for work with a file.

This section is aimed at facilitating navigation through file pages, outlines, annotations and bookmarks. The next icon, , refers to the thumbnails view. By activating it, you are able to manage the file itself (add/delete, rearrange, and rotate pages, extract or share them).

The percentage at the right of the thumbnails view relates to the page’s layout. By tapping “+/-,” you enlarge or decrease the page size.

In the middle of the upper toolbar, the Annotation and Edit modes icons are located.

In the right part of the toolbar two icons are located.
