How do I change the default pdf zoom level when opening a pdf hyperlink?

How do I change the default zoom level of pdf hyperlinks (hyperlinks that end in a pdf extension)? I want to set it to “Fit to page” so that I can see the entire page on the monitor. How can I change this so that every pdf hyperlink always opens at the “Fit to page” zoom level?

This issue can be reproduced by opening the following link (random example).

Expected result: When you open the link, the default zoom level is not “Fit to page”. You have to click the “Fit to page” cross on the side of the screen.

@velcro,
I’m not sure that you can. I’m getting the same results as you – changing the PDF file to Fit to page works when viewing it, but if I close and reopen it (or view another PDF file), this setting is changed. You may have to use an extension to customize this type of behavior.
