When a user opens your PDF document, they see the initial view of the PDF. You can set the initial view to the magnification level, page and page layout that you want.
To do this follow the steps below:
- From the Ribbon click on the File Tab
- Select properties
- Click on Initial View
Layout and Destination
Navigation Tab: Chooses desired panels to be displayed in the navigation pane.
Page Layout: Chooses a page layout option to view the document. The default is Continuous.
Magnification: Chooses a zoom level that the document will appear at when opened. The default is the magnification set in File > Preferences > Page Display > Zoom.
Open to page: Specifies the page that appears when you open the document.
Display document title: Shows the document title in the title bar of the application window. You can view the document title in File > Properties > Description.
Open in Full Screen mode: Opens the document in Full Screen mode. The document pane fills the entire screen, with the toolbar, the navigation pane, and the status bar hidden behind.
Center window on screen: Places the application window in the center of the screen area.
Resize window to initial page: Adjusts the application window size to the default magnification set in File > Preferences > Page Display > Zoom.
User Interface Options
Choose options to hide parts of the interface as needed.
Define the initial view as Full Screen mode
If your PDF is a presentation, you may want to set the initial view to Full Screen Mode. After you define the initial view of the PDF, you can add page transitions to selected pages of the entire document. When setting the initial view of a PDF to Full Screen mode, you must define how the document opens.
1. Choose File > Properties.
2. In the Document Properties dialog box, select Initial View.
3. For best results, do the following:
Choose Page Only from the Navigation tab menu.
Choose Single Page from the Page layout menu.
Set Open to page to the page on which you want to start the presentation.
4. Select Open in Full Screen mode to open the document without the toolbar displayed. Click OK. (You have to save and reopen the file to see the effects.)
Note: Users can exit Full Screen mode by pressing Esc if their preferences are set this way. However, in Full Screen mode, users cannot apply commands and select tools unless they know the keyboard shortcuts. You may set up page actions in the document to provide this functionality
