Something has happened to the settings for viewing PDFs on my Acrobat Pro. It was fine until about a month ago, but now, if you click on a bookmark, the page is not displayed. If you go to the Pages tab, the pages are all laid out in mini-versions that I cannot get to enlarge. I can open the same documents in Acrobat Reader and not have any problem. None of the information in Help explains what setting in Professional is controlling this functionality. Any ideas?

You won't find a preference option to disable bookmark links or enlarging page thumbnails in Acrobat. Make sure you test a few files to be certain links are defined for bookmarks and view them in Reader and compare viewing in Acrobat. If you are certain that Acrobat is misbehaving, select Help > Repair Acrobat Installation. See if that solves your problem. If not, you may have to deinstall/reinstall Acrobat.ted
