Inherit Zoom setting for all bookmarks (Court requirements for filing electronic documents)
The standard setting for a bookmark is Fit Width. The ability to change that to Inherit Zoom or other setting is necessary as the Courts require bookmarked documents with Inherit Zoom setting. It takes 8 clicks per bookmark to change this. There is no way to select all bookmarks and change them all at once or make a permanent setting. I submit Administrative Records with hundreds, sometimes thousands of bookmarks and each one of those has to be individually clicked on and changed - x 8 clicks. Very tedious and time consuming.
We are delighted to share with you that Acrobat and Reader Desktop release for DC Continuous (20.012.20041) is Live now and this takes care of this Feature Request

The Set Default Bookmark Zoom Level menu item is now added to the PDF bookmark options. While creating a new bookmark, you can easily use this option to set the default zoom level. By default, the Inherit Zoom option is selected.
Also, Acrobat now provides an option in the bookmark properties to retain the destination page number when you adjust the zoom level of multiple bookmarks.
Please update your Acrobat (It should Auto update or you should do Help → Check for updates) and let us know your Feedback.

Years ago, I've created a free and open source (Java-based) app that allows you to apply "Fit page", "Actual size", "Fit width", "Fit visible" or "Inherit zoom" to your bookmarks without selecting each item manually—either for a single PDF file or entire directories (enclosing subdirectories included):
I'm currently working on an enhanced version which you can find here:
1. Make the current bookmark stand out more from the others.
2. The ability to change all bookmarks at the same time to "fit page" or "fit width" etc
By the way, I see that this has been reported as an issue since 2011, so I am not optimistic.
Please allow someone to set the default view for both bookmarks and hyperlinks to another page in the same document. Manually changing them to inherit view on a 100 page document is excruciating.
Thank you for considering this issue.
