          Acrobat by itself can't do it, maybe only using a plugin.

          However, it can be done using this standalone tool I've created: Custom-made Adobe Scripts: Batch Edit Zoom Level in Bookmarks

            You can set this in the properties of the bookmarks.

              Yes, but if there are so many bookmarks how can i set the inherit zoom with a single command.

                  This works for Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, although I had to do them one at a time (I'm a beginner).

                   

                       (P.S. Are you fling a legal brief in the California Second District Court of Appeal?  Their local rules insist on having electronic bookmarks for every component, table, exhibit, brief heading and sub-heading, all with the "Inherit Zoom" property.)

                   

                  Okay, let's assume you have already created the bookmark, given it the name you want, and you checkmarked the Wraparound feature so that your bookmark can have as long a name as you want.  Now you want the bookmark to have the "Inherit Zoom" property.

                   

                  (1) Open the bookmark navigation pane.  Do this by left-clicking the bookmark icon located on the left side of the screen.

                  (2) Right-click on the bookmark that you want to edit, and a menu will appear.  Choose "Properties . . ." from the menu.

                  (3) A dialog box will pop up.  Choose the "Actions" tab of the dialog box.  The Actions panel has an upper area and a lower area.

                  (4) In the upper ("Add an Action") area, the "Select action" option should be set to "Execute a Menu Item"

                  (5) In the lower ("Actions") area, highlight the item "Go to a page in this document" and then click the Edit button. 

                  (6) Set the  "Zoom: " option to "Inherit Zoom".   Then click OK, and then click OK again to complete the operation.

                    I've created an open-source tool that allows you to apply inherit zoom (and other zoom levels) to all bookmarks within a PDF document or entire directories of PDFs (enclosing subdirectories included) without selecting each item manually:

                      While I am still trying to figure out how set Inherit Zoom as default (I used to do this with Acrobat years ago and now using and learning it again), I can tell you how to set them individually.

                       

                      I'm using a Mac btw, so if you're using Windows some things may be different, don't know.

                       

                      In Existing Link:

                      - Right Click link

                      - Edit Link

                      - Actions

                      - Under Actions select “Go to a page in this document” [edit: it is NOT actually necessary to make this selection if you haven't already modified the action]

                      - Edit

                      - Select Zoom level, hit OK… to close windows

                       

                      Hope this helps.  If I figure out how change the default zoom level for links I will try to come back to edit or add another reply.

                       

                      Best regards
