I'm using Adobe Acrobat X.
I understand that setting the destination of a bookmark also establishes the view magnification. Apparently, this is always the case, and that doesn't seem right to me.
Suppose all I want is for each bookmark to take the reader to a particular page, and I don't want the view magnification to be any different from the magnification that the reader is currently using. For example, suppose I've set Initial View, Magnification to Default when creating the PDF. How do I make sure the reader isn't going to get confronted with a different view magnification upon clicking on a bookmark and being taken to the page?
What you're describing is an "inherit zoom" type of destination (view), and you can set up a bookmark to do that. The problem is you have to edit the bookmark action after you create them to change the zoom from "Fit Width" to "Inherit Zoom", which can be a bit tedious.
Where do I find "Inherit Zoom"?
In the Zoom pulldown menu, I see:
Zoom To . . .
Zoom to Page Level
Pan & Zoom
Inside Zoom To..., there is:
and a bunch of percentages.
Select the existing "Go to a page in this document" action, as you did in the 3rd and 4th example that you show and click the Edit button, and you should see where you can select "Inherit Zoom" for the zoom setting.
Edit: I see you found it.
