Set Document to "Actual Size" to as Default

Post by fwshaw » Wed Feb 24, 2021 9:05 pm

Windows 10 - PDF-XChange Editor Plus Version: 9.0, build 352.0

It is the default *.pdf viewer on the system.

When a *.pdf file is clicked it opens in XChange Editor which almost always opens the document in maximiun width (generally about 140% to 150% of normal size) format.

How can I set the XChange Editor to open documents to "actual size" (100%)? Not to "fit width" or other size.

I've look at the setting in Property (ctrl-k) but haven't see a solution.

Is this possible?

Many thanks.

Hi fwshaw,

thanks for the post. You are in the right plce, look to the "Page Display" category of the Preferences where you will find a "Default Page Zoom".

If you leave the box to "Respect Document Settings" checked, and if the document dictates a default initial view it will override your 100% preference. Not all documents dictate a default view zoom level. Turn that off to force the 100% initial view option.

I hope that helps.
