Default Pages Panel "ON"
Create a setting in Preferences that defaults to:
View | Show | Navigation Panes | Page Thumbnails
so that thumbnails ALWAYS appear in the navigation pane and are never hidden unless done manually.
We already support this with the “Pinning of navigation pane” feature. i.e. to open any Navigation Pane by default for all the documents in the LHP.
This is how you can try this out:
1) Launch any PDF and Expand the Panel that you want the acrobat to open by default for every document(For Ex. Page Thumbnails)
2) Right click on the LHP Navigation strip , Select the option from the context menu “Pin Page thumbnails” .
3) now try out by launching any other pdf → You will observe that the Page thumbnails panel would appear expanded by default on launch (If document does not have any other document specific preference )
This Feature is applicable to DC and Classic 2017 track (not available in Classic 2015)
Ayush Jain, you have changed my life!! I have been scouring the web for months looking for a solution to this problem, and you're the first one who has mentioned "Pin Page Thumbnails." THANK YOU!
No, "Restore last..." presents two problems. 1) It used to work consistently, but no more; typically when I save a document with the pages panel open, next time it's opened, the entire panel is closed. 2) When it worked, it didn't do what was requested. I don't want to simply restore for an existing document; I also want to open new documents with the pages panel open by default.
This used to default all the time for me. What happened that it stopped working all of a sudden?
Thanks for raising a feature request.
We would forward it to the engineering team and let you know whenever we add this preference.
Would also prefer to be able to set thumbnail size - close/reopen a document, they reset - 2 column view for thumbnails is quite common here to review document pagination.
