Does there is a way so a PDF file always open at 100% despite the preferences of the person who opens it?
Asking the concerned people to change their settings is not an option unfortunately.
Did you try setting Open Options in Acrobat's File Properties? Some apps will ignore it, but Acrobat Reader should not. Indeed, people often complain that they do not like their Reader doing this, so take care with your choices.
Thank you for your fast reply.
Unfortunately, my organization only use a 2015 version of Acrobat Reader and it do not have this feature. We know that it is a feature possible in the latest ver
My supervisor will talk to our boss about it.
Thank you again.
This feature is not available in the free Acrobat Reader AT ALL, not in any version. You will need to pay for Acrobat to make changes like this. ("Acrobat" does not mean "Acrobat Reader". Confusing isn't it!)
That's what I understood from my collegue who tested it, but it wasn't what he intended to say. He talked about the accessibility zoom in Preferences settings.
Nothing that anyone changes in Preferences will affect their files for anyone else. They are personal settings. This is File > Properties in Acrobat.
We came to the same conclusion.
Thank you again.
Note : Only possible with the Pro version.
Not even then... I believe the Accessibility settings override even the Open Options settings of the file, which can be set in Acrobat. The only thing that might trump the Accessibility settings is embedding a script into the file to ensure it opens at a specific zoom level.
That's true enough. If someone sets accesssibility settings, Adobe have to honour it. I believe it would be illegal for them to do otherwise in the USA.
Thank you for your answers.
The case is closed on my organization side.
