Acrobat reader opens at 50% zoom and always in first page

Postby hardhu » Tue Apr 08, 2014 12:38 pm

Hello everybody,
I am using Texniccenter 2.02 and Miktex 2.9. I am using output profile Latex -> pdf, with this DDE command to view project's output in Acrobat Reader:

[DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][FileOpen("%bm.pdf")]

The pdf file produced is opened correctly in Acrobat Reader, but here are two little annoying things:

1) the document is opened always in the first page, not in the last one;
2) the zoom level is set at 50%, instead when I use profile Latex -> Dvi -> Pdf, the zoom level is at 100%.

Is there a way to remove these issues?

It's much better to use sumatrapdf for Tex:

Is it easy to configure it as viewer in Latex->Pdf profile?

EDIT: I found this guide looking back in old threads:

https://code.google.com/p/sumatrapdf/wiki/DDEcommands

This allows to open the document in SumatraPDF at the last page, as desired, but the zoom is still set to a very low level.

EDIT 2: by keeping the pdf document opened, the zoom stays at the level I manually set, so this seems to be a good workaround.
