Hi!

I have a program that builds web pages with links to a lot of .pdf files. This works just fine with one exeption. Some of the documents open and I see the bottom of the first page of the pdf rather than the top. Since many of the pdf's only have text in the top half I often see a blank screen and manually have to scroll to the top of the page after the pdf is displayed. Is there any way I can force the pdf to open from the top of the page?
Thanks!

You could force options onto acrobat using command line. Then all pdfs would open the same way.

Pages 4 onwards give the various options.

Yes, but I don't think I can do that using a hyperlink in a HTML file. Or at least I don't know how...

Ok. Sorry I thought you were using acrobat reader to open the pdfs. So you are using the acrobat plugin within a browser to view the pdfs.

Try looking at page 8.

just tried:

but does not seem to work for me in Google Chrome.

What browser and Acrobat plugin version are you using?
