After you create the link and set the destination, you have to go back and edit the link and will then be able to select "Inherit Zoom" from the Zoom dropdown. It would be nice if you could set this as the default...

Thanks for your reply. It is very helpful.

I still have further questions about this topic. I have a lot of hyperlink in my documents. somebody showed me before that there is a feature in old version of acrobat called Debenu. under it, i can change magnification of all links at once. Do we have the same function in the latest version? I could not find it.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Debenu is a company that produces its own PDF tools and plugins. What you're referring to is probably their "PDF Aerialist" plugin for Acrobat. It's not an integral part of Acrobat, though. You have to purchase and install it separately.

Acrobat doesn't have this option by itself. You'll need to use a plugin (like that of Debenu) or a stand-alone tool (like this one I've developed: Custom-made Adobe Scripts: Batch Edit Links Zoom Level) to be able to do it.

Yes you can add inherit zoom to all the bookmarks at a time. Simply follow the steps.

Select all the bookmarks.

Then right click. Bookmark properties window will be open.

In that click on actions.

You find two windows. Below the second window there is a Edit option. Click on edit option. And change zoom type to inherit zoom. Then click on ok button. And close all the window. U will find inherit zoom to all the bookmarks.

The answer you comment on is from 2016, i.e. nearly 5 years old. The Acrobat UI changes over time. Before implying the original answerer gave a wrong answer and asking them to esearch first, have you checked the Acrobat UI from that time?

As mentioned before, Acrobat only allows you to set the magnification one by one. If you're looking for a free and open source solution to do this automated, have a look at this: https://bitbucket.org/beatngu13/pdfbookmarkwizard​.

That appears to work only with bookmarks and not link annotations. Is that right?
