Fuzzy Jump to file based on opened pdfs - Reg and horz tab support

Asked by Vignesh on 2020-11-09


I am a masters student and I had to study multiple pdfs and so there's atleast 15 pdfs opened at a time. qpdfview seems incredible convinient especially the search feature across all open PDFs or PDF's in current folder and my very thanks for it.

There are two more features ( which I personally felt will be very useful and easy to implement in QT) is "Jump to File" and in Vertical tabs, "Display PDF tile if monitor space is present".

1. When I press "Ctrl-P" in Sublime Text, it opens fuzzy file search. A similar feature to open a PDF in current folder or atleast in the currently open pdfs.
2. I am using vertical tabs and it would be awesome if full file name (atleast partly) is displayed in the tabs if monitor space is available.

Please implement this features if possible

I have made a very "rough" implementation for Jump to File feature. If there are any plans to accept it, I will make it perfect. Please provide comments on the same.
