Hi

Not from Distiller, but if you open it in Acrobat you can go to to File> Properties and select the open options from 'Initial View' tab.

if this still opens fully maximised on your client's PC, check if he has override preferences switched on: Go to Edit >Preferences and select 'Page Display' from the left column. Make sure the 2 drop downs in Default Zoom are set to 'Automatic'.

Also in Preferences switch off the 'Restore last view settings...' from the 'Documents' section on the left column.
