Using latex (or pdflatex):
pdfTeX 3.141592-1.40.3-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.6)
with the hyperref package:
2007/02/07 v6.75r Hypertext links for LaTeX
(both from the TeX Live 2007 DVD), how do I arrange
for a default acroread(1) viewing size of “Fit Width”?
Or of “Fit Visible”?
The PDFs nominally generated end up as “Fit Page”,
which is unreadable, so the readers/users have to
click |View| → |Fit Width| (or similar; e.g.,
Ctrl-2). I consider this both annoying and silly.
The hyperref doc mentions the package option
“pdfstartview” with a default value of “Fit”,
but does not list other possible values (albeit
there is an incomprehensible example of “FitBH”,
whatever that is!). Obvious guesses such as
“FitWidth” and “Width” just cause acroread v7.0
to pop up an error saying the guess is unknown.
That incomprehensible example (see §4.2, “Utility
Macros”, in the hyperref manual) sort-of seems to
do what I want (on quick tests), but since I'm
uncertain what it really is doing, I'm reluctant
to use it .... ;-\
