When exporting a document from InDesign CS6 to PDF, is it possible to set the "initial view" of the PDF, so that the PDF opens up in "two up" (side-by-side) format by default?

I can do this in Acrobat. Can it be done directly in InDesign?

That doesn't sound like something one could set on document level since it's a client perspective setting. –  AndroidHustle Mar 18 '13 at 14:07

Unfortunately Acrobat options in other applications simply aren't as robust as they are in Acrobat itself.

There is no way to set the Initial View options from within Indesign, or Illustrator and Photoshop for that matter.

file > export > pdf (interactive) and choose initial view.

Please can you explain what that should do? Only the command sequence is perhaps not understandable for all readers ... –  Kurt Oct 6 '13 at 17:40
    
I tried to export the pdf with the way described above, but in that case I could not apply the required job options. Does this mean that we cannot combine standard job options with Initial View options? –  gagas Nov 12 '13 at 18:19
