How can I see pages side-by-side in Acrobat 8?

How can I open multiple pages at once in Acrobat, so I can see them side-by-side?

I have Acrobat Standard 8.

I have some documents where I'd like to compare pages - see 12 with page 37 side-by side, for instance.

I can't seem to find a way to open both at the same time - only to pop back-and-forth betwen bookmarks.

How does one open several pages at once in the same document, or open multiple instances of Acrobat at once?

I'm not sure if you can do that, but what I would do is copy the file and give it a new name. Then open both files and use the tiled window view. Not elegant, but it will give you your desired effect.

Not side-by-side, but top-and-bottom -- drag the tiny area above the vertical scroll bar down. Then you have the same doc open in two panes.

Hm. The top-and-bottom view might work for some things: thanks for that.

Is there, maybe, a way to embed a link to another page/bookmark in the document?
(at a line on page 12, make a hyperlink-type link to page 37 reading "See Page 37"?)
