In TexWorks pdf viewer is there anyway to zoom to a numerically specified size. Their is no options under "view" that seems to do this. In the bottom left hand corner you can click on the percentage and get "150%" "75%" etc. but I don't see any box where you can input a fixed percentage.

Sorry in advance if this has been asked before, I only see other issues with the viewer in a stackexchange search (there are a lot of them).

    File-->Edit-->Preferences-->Preview--> select Default scaling= 500 or whateverand Press Ok. TeXworks might require a Restart to take settings into effect. But I recommend Fit to Width and Fit to Window which are more accessible,suitable and adaptable settings for PDF viewer in TeXworks shown at the same place where you find "150%" "75%" etc.. – texenthusiast Aug 9 '13 at 23:02
  • Well actually the reason why I wanted a specified percentage is because I wanted to see all the page minus borders (not the full page), but your preferences option works for this! – WetlabStudent Aug 9 '13 at 23:42

In TeXworks:

File-->Edit-->Preferences-->Preview--> select Default scaling= 500 or whateverand Press Ok. TeXworks might require a Restart to take settings into effect.

One can also use Fit to Width and Fit to Window which are more adaptable settings for PDF viewer in TeXworks shown right hand side bottom of PDF viewer window where you find "150%" "75%" etc.
