In Acrobat Pro 2017 running under MS Windows, how can I prevent PDF documents from modifying the Acrobat window size when they are loaded?

 

Thanks,

Andreas

That should not be happening. What exact version of Acrobat are you using, and what's your OS version?

Acrobat Pro 2017.011.30150, Windows 10 (1903) 64-bit.

 

IMHO, you can 'tell' a PDF document to resize the program window when the document is loaded (although I have never personally done that). I would simply like to prevent the re-sizing from happening.

A file can be set to resize the window to the initial page, and/or to center the window in the screen, and/or to display in Full Screen mode (the last one requires user approval, though). I don't think there's a global settings that prevents these settings from working, though. You can change it on a file-by-file basis, or run on Action to change it in multiple files.

I would also like to know how to prevent PDF files from repositioning or reszing my Acrobat Pro DC windows. It's very annoying and wastes my time having to properly resize the window and place it where I want on my Win10 computer.

I, too, would like to be able to use Acrobat without having it move and resize the window 800 trillion times per day.

 

I would gladly strike a deal if that's what it takes.  I agree to be given an electric shock every time Acrobat wants to do this, and in consideration for my willingness to receive arbitrary electric shocks, Acrobat must agree not to engage in this obnoxious behavior
