# PDF page size with Latex

I made a pdf file using Latex but the size is 49% by default.

How can I change it to 100% by default ?

Thank you

By 49% I assume that's the zoom level of the viewer you're using. You can adjust this as part of the PDF using hyperref's pdfstartview option:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\hypersetup{
pdfstartview = XYZ null null 1.00,% x y zoom
pdfstartpage = 1
}

\begin{document}

\lipsum

\end{document}


Note that this is viewer dependent, and most likely will only result in a start view at 100% if you use Adobe Reader.

• Hello It helped , but when I open it it become the main page is 2 , the front page is not the first anymore.
