I've read that when someone creates a pdf file with an article, this is what causes the Hand Tool to change in appearance and move/zoom the page when you click anywhere. This is one of the most annoying 'features' I've ever come across. I prefer to use the Hand Tool to pull the page exactly where I want it to be, rather than scrolling with the wheel, and every time I click my page jumps and zooms from where I was at. I cannot see how this would be useful in any setting, let alone as a default. Is there any way I can override this? I'm using Adobe Reader 9, not the full pro version.
This wouldn't be quite so obnoxious, but it zooms the page so large that it requires horizontal scrolling to read it all. If anyone knows an solution, please share!
Disable the entry 'Make Hand tool read articles' in the preferences of Adobe Reader.
