How to Change Default Zoom Setting of PDF Files

Home > PDF Reading Tips > Change Default Zoom Setting of PDF

PDF files offer a simple and highly-compatible platform for creating, sharing, and storing digital information. However, some aspects of PDF files can make usability less than desirable. For instance, PDF files that are created with small viewing settings force users to squint while reading, which negatively affects user experience.

For this specific problem, one of the solutions is to change the zoom settings using the magnifying glass that comes on toolbars on most PDF tools. In this article, I will tell you how to change default zoom setting of PDF files without having to adjust the zoom settings each time you access the file.

Part 2How to Set Default Zoom of PDF Files

Getting started with PDFelement is quite simple. The program covers users across all major platforms, including regular updates and support for each platform. Once you download PDFelement for your computer, follow these steps to alter zoom settings for your PDF documents.

Step 1. Import PDF into PDFelement

Otherwise, you can simply select "Open" from the Home window, navigate to the folder containing your PDF file, then select it and click "Open" to upload it.

Step 2. Alter Default Zoom Settings

With the file uploaded, navigate to "File > Preferences > General" (selected by default). The sub-window gives displays different options by default, including startup and display settings.

Under the "Display" section, click the drop-down options menu titled "Default Zoom" and select the appropriate zoom setting. Options here start from letting the content fit the page and go up to a zoom factor increment of 600%. Click "OK" to save the changes. Then the document will always start out with this zoom setting until you change it again.

Step 3. Modify Content in PDF

The editing and modification don't have to end with the zoom settings. You can perform further modifications with PDFelement until you are fully satisfied with your documents. To modify text and images, you can navigate to the "Edit" tab and choose an option you need.

To make changes on pages, you can go to the "Page" menu and select from rotate, crop, extract and many other options.
