Indesign preset to disable PDF scrolling in Acrobat

Good day. I'm trying to find an exporting setting in Indesign that'll automatically disable scrolling when viewing the PDF in Acrobat (so when scrolling through the PDF in Acrobat, it jumps to the next page as oppose to scroll down the existing page). Is there such a function? Thank you.

You can set the initial view during export to Fit Page, but you have no control over if the user's choice of reader (if not Acrobat) will honor that, nor can you prevent the user from changing the view.

After some Indesign export testing I found the non-continuous layout option under Viewing yielded non-scrolling results, hopefully across various viewing settings in Acrobat. Will have to test amongst different viewers.

Testing is a good idea, but there is absolutely nothing you can do in InDesign or Acrobat that will help you with substandard PDF Readers.
