Document Initial View

The Initial View tab displays the initial view settings that determine how the document will be initially displayed when opened. These settings can be changed to control how the document appears the next time it is opened.

Note: If "Ignore document setting" has been set on any of the options in the Display Preferences, PDF Studio to ignore the document's settings and use the selected option instead of the options set in the initial view settings of the document

How to View/Edit the Initial View Settings

  1. Go to File > Document Properties from the menu or using the shortcut keys Ctrl + D (Cmd + D on Mac).
  2. Click on the Initial View Tab
  3. Select the initial view settings you wish to use
  4. Click OK to set the settings
  5. Save the document to save the new initial view settings

Note: You must SAVE the document in order for the initial view settings to be set. Just setting them in the document properties does not apply them to the document.
