    I just want to emphasize something to the Adobe engineers: yes, we KNOW we can change the setting for an individual document. We want an option for globally overriding the InitialView setting.

    If you download a lot of academic journal articles, they often have this annoying InitialView setting. *It is extremely cumbersome to manually change this on every single PDF you open.* Furthermore, even if you only intend to open the PDF once (in which case there would be no need to change the setting), it's still very irritating to have to adjust your window after Adobe needlessly resizes it.

    I also want to emphasize that many users appear to find this "feature" annoying. Read the comments on an earlier, "resolved" version of this post:

    https://acrobat.uservoice.com/forums/590923-acrobat-for-windows-and-mac/suggestions/34261225-add-option-to-keep-documents-from-moving-resizing

    Also, check out the comments on these two questions on the Acrobat discussion boards:

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/completely-fully-disable-100-of-any-and-all-auto-window-resizing-document-rezooming-functions/td-p/10780938

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/how-to-prevent-pdfs-from-changing-the-acrobat-window-size/td-p/10707505

    PLEASE listen to your users and give us the option to globally disable automatic window resizing.
