I am using the option pdfpagelayout=SinglePage, but when I open the presentation file it appears with the scrolling option enabled , which is highly undesirable for presentations. How can I force the single page view on my presentation?

    Did you try \hypersetup{pdfpagemode=FullScreen}? It works fine.

  • @Eddy_Em Yes I did, but I'd rather prefer a "windowed" solution. Commented Jun 17, 2013 at 10:01
  • Is is scrolling from page to page or is the aspect ratio of your window just such that it can't all fit on there? pdfview=Fit might be a good \hypersetup option to try. Commented Jun 17, 2013 at 10:18
  • @UlrichSchwarz Well, I tried the seemingly similar option pdfstartview=Fit, with no effect. Regarding the aspect ratio, the PDF viewer window (Adobe Reader X) opens maximized...by the way, pdfview=Fit is not working, either. Commented Jun 17, 2013 at 10:44
  • Does it do the expected thing with Acrobat?
