fit page when bookmarks are clicked

I have a pretty long PDF that I'd like to stay in "Fit to page". I changed the initial view as well as the default view, but whenever I click a bookmark, it goes back to 'fit width'. I'm not sure where to go to fix this.

RE: fit page when bookmarks are clicked

Check the properties of the link. You may have 'fit width' as part of the page view for that link.

RE: fit page when bookmarks are clicked

Fantastic. Is there a way to edit multiple bookmarks? I tried using "Ctrl" to highlight several at a time, but the page number of the bookmark all became identical.  

RE: fit page when bookmarks are clicked

Old post, I know, but rather than editing each bookmark separately you can change them all in one go using the following methodology:

1) open file and display bookmarks (in Acrobat 9 in this case)
2) select all bookmarks (blue bars displayed)
3) point to any bar, right click, select 'Properties'
4) in 'Bookmark Properties' select 'Actions' then select 'Add..' (caveat: NOT EDIT or you'll wind up with all bookmarks pointing to the same page)
5) after pressing 'Add...' you'll see a 'Menu Item' pop-up, which about midway down the list has an entry for 'View>Zoom>Fit Page'. Select that and press 'OK'. Then hit 'OK' one last time and you're done.
6) check bookmarks

I found this useful after combining .pdf-s. One sidenote: if the bookmarks have sub-bookmarks they you'll have to display them all to make the change universal. Otherwise, you'll find that only those immediately visible are changed. winky smile
