I am having trouble getting the bookmark pane in adobe reader 9 to stay open. I would like to have it open and stay visible on startup for a number of documents. I have tried to set preferences to "Restore last view settings when reopening documents" but the reader still will not keep the bookmark pane open. Is there a registry setting (ideally) that I can tick to always set this open?
In Adobe Acrobat (not Adobe Reader) you can change the initial view of the PDF documents.
