Fit width changes to fit page when click on bookmark

Post by arnyeinstein » Wed Mar 07, 2018 10:16 am

Hi
I have in my preferences fit width, continuous page and show bookmarks. If I open a pdf, it fills the view pane (fit width) correctly, but if I click on a bookmark it jumps to fit page. Is there anywhere a setting that I forgot (I want to have it too fit-width)

Cheers
Renger

Hello Renger,

Do you have this option selected as well?

As bookmarks operations could be more complex than just "go there", and be e.g. "go to this page in that document and change the zoom level to..." so the information for changing the zoom can be included in the bookmark itself, and with the option from the above - you will tell the Editor to ignore the zoom change part of bookmarks.

Regards,
Stefan

Hi Stefan
I found the culprit. One of the pages is in wide format, therefore, I have margins on both sides if I view a long format page.

Hello Stefan,
I almost had the same question as @Renger - so thanks for the hint.
I have a downloaded pdf-file where all bookmarks are given the zoom level "Fit Page". Is it possible to select all bookmarks in one go and then change the zoom level for all of them to "Fit Width" and save it as a new pdf-file?

Hi Renger,

Glad to hear that you found what was causing it!

@HePe - I am afraid that there's no such way for mass changing of bookmarks.

Regards,
Stefan
