    Hi, on Lion in fullscreen defaults every new document to "Two Pages", which is impossible to use on my 11". For every document I open, I therefore have to change the view to "Continuous Scroll" (what happened to Two Pages continuous scroll???).

    Is it possible to change this default setting? I couldn't find anything in the settings, but maybe someone knows a terminal command or something similar to fix it?

    yes that is happening to me I love that in DP 3 you could 2 finger swipe from page to page after you fullscreen it. Now in DP4 it reverts back to 2 page view . Quite annoying but maybe a bug

    when in full screen mode, hover at the top of the screen 'til the menubar appears, go to view, then select continuous scroll.

    Works fine here

    Sure, but two-page view is the default for every document. It could just use the last mode instead.

    insist apple changes this

    give apple feedback:

    they ask you about 5 useless questions to discourage the lazy user from sending, but do it anyway !

    copy and paste this :

    "I find it very annoying to have to switch to continuous scroll to get a better view of my PDFs every time preview goes into full screen. there should be an option in preview's preferences for default views in full screen"

    RIP, Steve.
