No, that did not make any difference. I even restarted Acrobat after making the change, and then opened the file.
Actually, one thing changed. After I opened the document, then manually set every page to Fit Visible one by one, and saved the file, when I reopened it, the pages remained as Fit Visible. So that is an improvement.
What the...? It's weirder than that. If I use a Bookmark to go to a page directly, it changes that page view to Fit Width. Then that page is permanently stuck at Fit Width, whether I open it by Page Down or by Bookmark. Worse, when I page Up or Down to the next page, it is now at Fit Width. I did not realize that the Bookmark feature encapsulated the current Zoom setting in place when setting up the bookmark. That is kind of silly -- it should be overridden by the global setting. Now I am going try resetting all the bookmarks.

Yes, bookmarks can contain a change to the zoom level. That is not silly and all and is a very useful feature. The same is true of links, by the way.
If you don't like it you can change them manually and set them to "Inherit Zoom". Then the zoom level won't change when you click them.
If you want to change the zoom level associated with multiple bookmarks (in multiple files) you can use this tool I've developed:
this.hasZoomed = this.zoom;
This does not keep the zoom for all bookmarks to 112%. Please could you let me know how I can keep the zoom to 112% for all bookmarks.
This one line should accomplish this:
this.zoom = 125;
Thank you. When I apply this the zoom is 125% not 112%. If I change the number to 112 the zoom still goes to 125.
I tested this again and it did infact work.
Thank you very much.
Sorry, I got the number wrong. Somehow I though you said 125%.
