How do I set PDF-XChange Editor to always open a document to a certain page?

Symptoms

I am using PDF XChange Editor and have merged several pdf’s into one document. It is several hundred pages long and when opening the document, it does not open at page one. Is there a way to correct this so it will always open at page one?

Resolution

 It is possible to set PDF-XChange Editor to always open to page one. 

Changing the Document Properties

On the File tab, click Document Properties.

In the resulting window, navigate to the Initial View category, and change the Open to page value to 1

If this is already set to 1, there may be another setting overriding this one. Click OK to close the window.

Changing the Editor Preferences

On the File tab, click Preferences.

In the resulting window, navigate to the Page Display category and uncheck the box next to "restore last used view of document: custom..."

Click Apply and then OK to save these settings.

Your documents will now open to the page determined by the document every time that you open them.
