Set a default zoom for display of documents?

My principal use of DT3b6 is to file and organize a lot of documents used in my scholarly research, primarily .pdfs of articles and books. My display preference when searching and viewing these documents is “Zoom to Width”: I can easily drag the window to the best size for easy reading (these eyes are getting a little old) or use Moom to snap it to any of several predefined settings.

It would be a great help to me to have a way to set a default zoom setting that applies across all documents: Zoom to Width or Zoom to Fit, etc. Is this possible? Am I missing a setting somewhere that will accomplish this?

With Automatically resize enabled in Preferences > Media > PDF Display, setting it to:

Single Page or Two Pages defaults to Zoom to Fit
Single Page Continuous or Two Pages Continuous defaults to Zoom to Width.



Thanks from my side as well, Jim!


BTW, well implemented!

Wow. Thanks.

Thanks go to @cgrunenberg but I’m sure he’ll see them now :slight_smile:

Want to say Thanks for this too.

Meta Note: Maybe a Like alone would be more appropriate, but I feel this post (and the feature) needs more than that…
