Link Multiple Devices to Control Page-Turning

Created on:
Updated on:

You can link multiple devices together using Sessions, so when you turn pages on the master device, all connected devices will stay in sync. Sessions requires WiFi is on and the device is connected to the internet.

From the sidebar, open the Sessions tab.

1. Start New Session

When you choose Start New Session, the header changes to green to indicate you are in control of a session, and others can join your session.

Session is Started

On the master device, you'll see a list of all devices who have joined your session. Enable Allow Control to give that person access to controlling all devices. Your header will turn red, and the new device in control will have a green header, but you can still close the session; the "controller" cannot.

2. Connect to a Session

When you Connect to a Session, choose the device you'd like to join.

Joining a Session

You have successfully connected when your header turns red. Any actions made on the master device will be shown on your device. If you are logged into the same account as the master device, your device will even refresh when new annotations are made on the master device.

You are connected

Disconnect at any time to gain access to your own device again.

Control Indicators in PDF View (v3 only)

For v3, the PDF view doesn't have headers shown, so to know if you are controlling a session or being controlled by another device, there are icons at the top right.

The green device has an arrow going away from it to indicate you are the master device sending control to other devices

The red device has an arrow coming toward it to indicate you are a client device receiving control from another device
