Description Grant Farnsworth 2005-06-24 17:08:11 UTC
The "best fit" item in the view menu zooms such that a whole page is visible. 
Most people expect best fit to zoom a little more in than page width, such that
the text is as large as it can be while allowing a whole line of text to be seen.

I'm not saying we need a true "best fit," but I think the current "best fit"
item should be renamed "whole page" to avoid confusion.  A whole page view is
not most people's idea of best fit.

I too was confused by the label "best fit" and was not expecting "Fit Height"
and like Grant I too was expecting what acrobat reader calls Fit Visible, which
Zooms to page width excluding the margins.  (Dont see an request asking for that
feature but I would have sworn there was one.)

I've never liked that the "Best [Anything]" option wasn't our default.  That
said there seem to be two requests here.  One is to rename this option, the
other is to create the Fit Visible functionality.  What I'd like to see is that
we have a "Fit Visible" option that replaces the Best Fit, see the request in

Ok, marking as a dup then.
