pdf-tools jumps from the end of one page to the next page. Is there a ways to activate some kind of smooth scrolling? Also is there a way to display a double sided layout on my screen?
Apparently, this will not be fixed soon, quoting the package author in one of his replies to issue #27:
Generally speaking, there are two issues:
- Large parts of the software (including image-mode) assume a one-to-one correspondence between a displayed page and its window.
- Emacs is not easily convinced to scroll an image, such that its display starts in the middle of it, in case would completely fits into the window.
Maybe a bit late, but there is a fix that works for me, see here: https://github.com/politza/pdf-tools/issues/55
The second-to-last post has a fix which works for me. Place the functions somewhere in your Emacs config and bind them to
Not a pretty hack, but works so far for me - at least with pdf-tools.
This package does that https://github.com/dalanicolai/pdf-continuous-scroll-mode.el
Since it is not available in melpa use-package can not be used, but the following elisp will first install quelpa and then install the package.
(use-package quelpa :ensure t)
(add-hook 'pdf-view-mode-hook 'pdf-continuous-scroll-mode))
