Default Page Size Not Retained

Dec 13, 2010 9:28 AM

I have just installed Adobe X Pro after having been using 9 Pro. I am on Windows 7.

When I set Page Layout to Single Page and Fit Page it goes back to automatic after I close the document. I have tried checking, in Documents, Restore Last View Setting... that doesn't help. I want document, previously created with 9 Pro to open full page. I want new documents to be full page. Is there a setting I am missing?

    Do the documents have a initial view setting? If so, that takes precedence over your settings.

    Edit> Preferences - on the Page display tab.  This is where you can configure those settings.

    re: Initial View settings of a PDF.
    With the PDF open in Acrobat - File > Properties (Ctrl or Command + D).
    Select the Inital View tab. Configuration is established in the top most pane (Layout and Magnification).
    n.b., "Default" value implies the setting in Acrobat Preferences is utilized.
    When a PDF is opened these settings dictate the intial view provided by Adobe Reader / Acrobat.

    Re: Acrobat Preferences
    Select Edit > Preferences > category "Page Display" - Page Layout and Zoom can be set here.
    Meant to be "sticky" - Is so for the Acrobat X Pro install I have.
    If not true with yours you may want to consider a "repair" ( Help > Repair Acrobat Installation)

    Be well...

    1. File -> Properties -> Initial View is just to check whether you have any initial view set with that document or not.

    2. Can you try changing page display as you had been doing in a NULL Acrobat. By NULL Acrobat, I mean - launch only Acrobat and don't open any pdf in it. Then change page layout, zoom and close acrobat.

    3. Do you have reader installed on the same machine? If yes, which version exactly?

    4. Is it a multi-user system? Which user are you logged in as - admin or standard?

    A key you just mentioned was AA9.0.0. Before going much further, update. Acrobat is up to AA9.4.1. There are often a number of bugs in the early versions and this may just be one of them.

    Advance>Accessibility> Set up assistant> Don't use recommended settings. Go to next (3rd next)

    It worked.
