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?
Copy link to clipboard
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.
I have a dumb question , what happened to my bookmarks? Now I only see ThumbNails! How do I get back to bookmarks?
I'm running Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional
Try View > Navigation Panels > Bookmarks
All my Bookmarks show up as Thumbnails. How do I get them to show as Non-thumbnails - as in written Numbers & words?
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.
OK - why are my bookmarks now showing in a seperate window? They used to be not in a seperate window!
This is the bookmarks panel as a seperate window. You can dock the panel.
THANX! Is there a way to re-dock the panel?
Use the menu View > Navigation Panels > Reset ...
Thank you so much
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
"You can set the initial view of how a PDF opens in Acrobat Std. or Pro. (not Reader). "
What is incorrect at this answer?
