I need to give some instructions on viewing a pdf with mulitple pages in Acrobat 7. Right now she can only see one page, and unfortunately I'm in Adobe Acrobat 9, so the options are not the same apparently.

Assuming she wants to view 2 pages side by side, go to menu View> Page Layout> Facing or Continuous Facing.

She just can't seem to view multiple pages period - anything beyond the first page. But I found an old copy on my machine... and the page tab is obvious. I don't get it. Is there a setting she might have off to not even see the tab? Or is there an earlier version that didn't have the page tab the top left?

Appreciate the response.

First she should select View> Navigation Tab > Pages. This will give her an overview of the pages in the document. if she then follows the advice above she will get one page on the right hand side only then facing pages when scrolling down.

Also have a look at File> Document properties if there is anything unusual for this document under the Initial View tab.
