Summary

I wish when I export a pdf file to have by default the thumbnail tab activated and not the layers

Solution

In version 7016 we exported a new property like below to control the default navigation pane that the PDF will show when it is opened in a PDF reader.

This property is exported at the Document.FileProperties object

remarks>Get/Set the default navigation pane when saving in PDF format.
public PDFExportDefaultNavigationPaneEnum PDFExportDefaultNavigationPane

The PDFExportDefaultNavigationPaneEnum can take the following values
None,Thumbnails,Layers,FullScreen

C# code : doc.FileProperties.PDFExportDefaultNavigationPane = vdFileProperties.PDFExportDefaultNavigationPaneEnum.Thumbnails;
