PDF /GoToR named destination link with inherit zoom

Hi,

I have a pdf file source.pdf that has a /GoToR link that points to target.pdf with a named destination D1 specified.

On the target.pdf I have destination D1 defined using PDFMark:

[ /Dest /D1

    /Page 1

    /View [/XYZ 0 0 0]

    /DEST pdfmark

If I open source.pdf and set the zoom level to 250% in acrobat and click the link, the target opens with the default zoom setting (FitV I think). I've checked my preferences to make sure that it should be getting zoom settings from the PDF file

NOTE: If the destination is in the same file and the link is a /GoTo instead of a /GoToR, the zoom setting is respected.

Is there a setting or something I am missing?

A Named Destination contains a zoom level setting. You can't use the "Inherit Zoom" level when pointing to it, as it contradicts its very definition of determining the exact view when opened.

That's 100% true. My named destination is defined with Inherit zoom (/XYZ where Z = 0). In acrobat, however, the zoom defined on the destination is not being respected.

If you have the ability to edit the destination values, try changing the Z value from 0 to null to see if it makes any difference. Both are valid and should be equivalent.

Thanks for the reply George. I just gave it a try and it still didn't work.

Strange. I'll be able to test it out on my systems this weekend to see if I get the same behavior.
