FIt One Full Page
For the love of dog, I want every. single. PDF. to open "Fit One Full Page". Always! Why is there not a default, and if there is a way to default it so I don't have to do it manually every stinking time please someone tell me!
Ramen! I had the same frustration until I found your question and read the answers.
If anyone is still struggling, here is the fastest way to get this sorted (in only 2 steps!):
1) Hit Ctrl + K
2) Under Categories (left) make sure you are in Page Display. Then on the top right under Default Layout and Zoom, got tot Zoom and choose "Fit Page" from the drop down.
Click OK and voila! Your pain is over. No more suffering
Exactly how I felt, but this worked! Thanks

To get fit one Full Page by default on every PDF here are the steps -
1. Hit CTRL+K
2. Goto Page Display in categories
3. Select Page Layout as "Single Page"
Details are also mentioned in https://community.adobe.com/t5/Acrobat-Reader/making-quot-fit-one-full-page-to-window-quot-default/td-p/3926239
To get the Fit to one Page option without a drop-down here are the steps -
1. Right click on the Toolbar
2. Goto "Show Page Display Tools"
3. Click on the Fit One Full Page
4. This should show this icon in the toolbar

Looks like they might have snuck it back in to Acrobat. It is back in reader also.
Right click on a blank spot on the tool bar to get the menus.
Turn off "Page View Modes" to get rid of the drop down.

Here is something I found in the registry, however it appears to be only the name and position of the buttons. Can someone try adding this to their registry manually and see if works, or tell me where else to look.
(see attached screen shot)

I had enabled the 2 buttons (see attached screen shot) a long time ago. After some updates to Acrobat, the buttons are still there and work fine. However, the option to enable them has disappeared (see screenshot).
I believe the fix may be very simple via REGISTRY editing. I have shown that the functionality still exists and Adobe has only taken away our ability to select the tool.
If someone can direct me to the the correct KEY in REGEDIT, I will be happy to investigate and share.

There is a way to make it a default, see this thread here: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/953109
"Here is an IDEA, let's put *Fit One Full Page* in a drop down so that MULTIPLE CLICKS are required in order to ACCESS IT. If users want it as ONE SINGLE ICON, they can always enable the Page Control floating bar -which is NOT AT ALL ANNOYING ALL OVER THE DOCUMENT, POPPING IN AND OUT-." I hope you're having A LAUGH at this because, Bluebeam Revu is also having a laugh at how many new costumers they're getting.

Great suggestion. Thanks for sharing.
I was very frustrated with this too, but I found a fix. Go to Edit>Preferences>Categories:>Page Display>Default Layout and Zoom, and then set "Page Layout" to "Single Page" and also set "Zoom" to "Fit Page" it should make "Fit One Full Page" the default when you open a PDF.
I also am very frustrated by the need to use multiple clicks to switch between "Fit to Width Scrolling" and "Fit One Full Page" scrolling. I am used to having two separate buttons, which I used frequently to go back and forth between the two views. Now I have a new version of Adobe Acrobat (2019.012.20034), in which I have to do two clicks instead of one every time I want to switch between the two views.
Please change back to the two-button format!
I agree that the fit one full page button is required, but also, the "fit to width and enable scrolling" button. These are the only page size buttons I ever use. First Adobe disabled them and they needed to be chosen. Now, they are combined into the drop down requiring an extra click to access. UNACCEPTABLE and very annoying!
I just found that there's an option to "Move page controls out of toolbar". It's a symbol that looks like a small rectangle with a down arrow. If you press that it moves the different view options to the bottom and gives you an option to select "Fit to One Page" by only clicking once. I found this helpful so hopefully it helps someone else as well. :)
Try CTRL-0 , Ctrl-minus sign and Ctrl-equal sign on the keyboard.
I hate taking my hand off the mouse to use a keyboard shortcut, but it seems to be the only way to get around the loss of functionality of the separate zoom buttons. I have three big monitors so that I don't have to hide toolbars.
And where can we say that we agree with a comment. The only option we get is to flag an idea as inappropriate. Aren't you interested in how many of us support a comment?
This has been a major headache for me as well. Adobe get your act together. I have been a big proponent of your products for a long time, but the last year or two has been nothing but disappointment for everything from software upgrades to customer support. Bluebeam hear I come...

The "Fit One Page" function needs to be added as a Quick Tool shortcut. Currently I have to access it from a drop down on the quick tools bar then select it. Becomes a 2 step process every time. I have software version 2019.010.20069
Please get rid of the dropdown menu and make the buttons separate like before. Adding an extra click was pretty bad.
I was able to get the full page view button back too, but now once it is on full page view, I can't get it back to the scroll view. It is locked in place. VERY frustrating.

Blue Beam is a direct competitor to Adobe Acrobat with more of a CAD feel.
