PDF with Bookmarks View Open in Default Adobe Reader

Have a basic question on Adobe Acrobat Pro and Adobe Reader

I have created a PDF in Adobe Acrobat Pro and I can see the bookmarks view when I open on my computer.  When I have a user that has Adobe Reader installed, they do not see the default bookmarks view when they open the *.pdf.

How do I accomplish this?

Thanks -

Todd

You can set the initial view of how a PDF opens in Acrobat Std. or Pro. (not Reader). To do this open the PDF file and select File > Properties > Initial View tab and from the Navigation tab dropdown select Bookmarks Panel and Page and then save the PDF.

I'm going to move this discussion to the Acrobat forums since your question relates to this product.

All my Bookmarks show up as Thumbnails. How do I get them to show as Non-thumbnails - as in written Numbers & words?

Hi G-W-N,

It sounds like you're still looking at the Thumbnails pane, not the Bookmarks pane. 

Can you post a screenshot of what you're seeing?

This aren't bookmarks. This is the pages or thumbnails panel.

The answer below is actually incorrect. There is no Initial View tab on Acrobat Reader DC. To correctly answer your question, it is not possible at this time

Hi @Allta Media,

The answer describes how to set "Bookmarks Panel and Page" to open as default just for one particular .pdf file in question.

For that purpose, the answer is correct.

But, for the purpose of setting the "Bookmarks Panel and Page" to open as the default "Navigation Tab" view  setting of the Acrobat Std. or Pro itself, the answer is not 'not correct', but it is not applicable.

I think that may be what @icanfigure meant by 'not correct'.

Anyway, if that is also possible, I would appreciate it if you kindly explain how to set the "Bookmarks Panel and Page" to open as the default "Navigation Tab" view setting of the Acrobat Std. or Pro itself. (Not just for one specific pdf file, but for any pdf file that will be openned under that Acrobat Std. or Pro)

Thank you for sharing your knowledge...
