PDF - Open with certain zooming?

Hi, Is it possible to create PDF from ODS PDF with options to open it at certain zooming? Say 90%?
So far it seem I can open all .pdf file I created at 91%. However it behaves differently from PC to PC.
Thanks,

Re: PDF - Open with certain zooming?

Hi:
I suspect it will depend in part on the size of the monitor and the resolution setting on each monitor. In SAS 9.2, there are some PDF specific options that will allow you more control over how the pages appear when the file is opened. For example, you can specify "FITPAGE" or "FITWIDTH" for the PDFPAGEVIEW system option as described here:

http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/lrdict/62618/HTML/default/a003136258.htm

I generally choose FITPAGE and then at least the entire first page of the document is visible to the person who opens the file and then they can adjust the zoom as they wish.
