How to Change all Bookmarks to Same View Style

Using Nuance Power PDF:

Have combined several PDFs into one PDFs and now want to be able to change all bookmarks to the same View Style:  For example, I want all of them to have the Pave View of "Fit to Page".  I can do this manually but cannot select multiple PDFs.  The steps I have are:

Select all of the bookmarks.
Right click and select Properties.
Then select "Action" and then under Actions, select "go to a page view".
Selected "Add" (create go to view" pop up)
With the Create Go To View" still on the screen, I clicked View and under "Page Fit Options", selected the appropriate option.


However, this ONLY changes it for one of the bookmarks, not all the ones I have selected.  Any ideas?

I have checked the internet and see that Adobe Acrobat can do this but we do not have Acrobat.

Let me know.

Hi Blakie,
If your goal is to have all pages open with the "Fit Page" view, changing the properties of all bookmarks is not the way to do it. The method is to change the Initial View to "Fit Page". Here are the steps for that in Power PDF:

File
Info
Description
Properties
Advanced Properties
Initial View
Zoom - select Fit Page
OK
File>Save or Save As

That will do it. I tested the set of steps above in Power PDF Advanced 2.1 — worked perfectly, and it's probably the same, or very similar, in Power PDF Standard, and in versions prior to 2.1. Regards, Joe
