Drag the pdf window to the right edge of the screen until a semi-transparent orange overlay appears and release. This will make the pdf window occupy the right half of the screen.
Do the same for the gedit window but this time to the left.
Both windows will now share the screen half-half and be visible at the same time.

For better view, you can close the sidebar in gedit and/or zoom the pdf file.

I had this problem with gedit and another program. It used to not happen; I'm not sure what caused the problem to start all of a sudden.

To fix it, I open gedit, press alt + space, and choose "always on visible workspace". With this option, there is no need to switch on "always on top".
