I followed the Inkscape PDF tutorial, and in that I saw that when opening a multiple pages PDF, a list of all pages was displayed on the side. When I open (or drag) such file, I can not see the pages list. What do I do wrong?

1. Can you please link to that tutorial? I don't know about that one.
2. Please compare Inkscape version numbers with the one used in the tutorial.

I also don't know which tutorial that might be.

When you open a multiple page PDF with Inkscape, Inkscape can only open one page (as far as I know).  When you try to open any PDF file, you will first see a small dialog with a few different options to choose from.  At the very top is a small dropdown menu where you can choose which page you want to open.

Although if you install a special extension, I think you can open multiple page PDFs.  There are 3 different extensions, and as far as I could see (when I recently needed one) they all work (and install) a little bit differently.  So if you have one of these extensions installed, please tell us which one.
