You simply cannot because if I remember well all information from the
relevant web sites, Adobe Reader does not work in the S-mode, there is
probably another PDF viewer and the PDF file will have to be shared
via a cloud (similarly as in iOS). You create the file, push it to the
cloud then ask the cloud app to move it to the working space of the
PDF viewer and open it. And of course, the possibility of reopening
the PDF at the same page just does not exist, because in the S-mode
applications are not allowed to communicate with each other, there is
no IPC and each app can only access its own AppData.
