The new session manager feature allows you to store the active list of documents opened in PDF Studio and then reopen that session again at a later time with a single click. Multiple sessions can be saved for ease of use when working across multiple projects. The stored session will retain the following:

  • Documents that were open
  • Tab order of the open documents
  • Number of windows open (if documents open in separate windows)
