Initial View properties

PDF documents can be set to display in particular ways when opened in a PDF viewer. For example, if your document contains bookmarks and you want them to be easily accessible, you can set the document to open with the Bookmarks pane already displayed. You can also set your PDF so it’s displayed at a particular zoom level, opens at a particular page, and so on. In Nitro Pro these settings are all controlled in the Document Properties dialog.

  • Center window on screen: Opens the application window in the center of your screen
