Hello.  Is it possible to change the default settings for creating a PDF from a Word document? 


Specifically, when I PDF a Word document, I would like:

  • The document magnification to automatically set to 100%
  • The bookmark panel set to automatically open
  • The PDF title to be the file name
  • And most of all, I would like all hyperlinks in the document to open a new window, rather than replace the current window.


Currently, I have to change the first three settings after I create the PDF and I have to edit each and every hyperlink in the PDF to change how the link opens.
