I am exporting my document to a pdf and I have not problem doing that.
But when I open the PDF it opens at 293%. How can I export it so that when it opens the PDF that it opens at 100%
If you're exporting out of InDesign CS5.5 and you choose File > Export > Adobe PDF (Interactive) you can specify the View (magnification) setting. It will open in Acrobat or Reader at that magnification.
If you're exporting to File > Export > Adobe PDF (Print), or if you have an earlier version of InDesign, you have to do it AFTER you create the PDF in Acrobat. In Acrobat, choose File > Properties > Initial View > Magnification. After you click OK, and quit out of Acrobat, it will open at your desired magnification in Acrobat and Adobe Reader.
Yes, I did overlook that part about different versions. Sorry about that.
I tried what was recommended but I do not see the option in Acrobat for File > Properties > Initial View > Magnification.. Do I need Acrobat Pro to do this?
