Setting the Initial View of PDF Files Before Sending

Posted in: Internet/Social Media, Tech Tips

There are several methods to set the initial view of a PDF document and this is just one of them. The instructions are intended only as a general description of the process and prepared using Adobe Acrobat.

When a user opens a PDF document they see the initial view of the PDF. You can set the initial view so that certain elements (such as the Bookmarks Panel) are shown by default when the PDF is opened. For example, you may want a file to open at a set zoom level or to show thumbnail pages. You can hide all the toolbars and task panes to maximize the viewing area on your screen. If you’re a paid Adobe Acrobat user or subscriber you can set easily set these options by going to File > Properties > Initial View > set your options.

Things to know:

1) Your recipient may have settings that override these options.

2) Your procedure may vary depending on which PDF creation software you are using; if you are not an Acrobat users, simply run a Google search for “Set initial view Product Name” – where product name is the tool you use and the version.
