Question(settings): display more than 10 books in menu


1. Summary

I can’t find, how I can increase the value of books that appear in the menu.

2. Example

File → I can select 1 of 10 books which I look in last days:

I want, that I can select from 50 books, not 10.

3. Argumentation

According to the specifics of my work, I look through thousands of books. I often go back to the books I look in last days. But I can quick open the last 10 books I look, although a file SumatraPDF-settings.txt contain data about older books that I look.

4. Not helped

I try to find answer in:

  1. Google,
  2. This forum,
  3. SumatraPDF settings documentation,
  4. SumatraPDF issues.

No effect.




Sorry to disappoint the short answer is you can not unless you make your own code changes

The question has been asked can it be increased both in the list you show and also on the front page where the 10 files are also a limit. this was set early on in development where the “recent” part of the listings was limited to only single digit key entries (you can press keys 0 to 9).
e.g. Alt +F + 5 opens the fifth file

I understand you want 50 entries and have observed that Internally SumatraPDF-settings.txt can hold many more than 10 entries

It is possible to keep large numbers such as 50 “Favorites” especially if you only save the first page in the list.
NOTE the Favorites list can also be opened on the first page without any files open
