    Specifies a numbered page in the document, using an integer value. The document's first page has a pagenum value of 1.

    ../test.pdf#page=pagenumber

    Sets the zoom and scroll factors, using float or integer values. For example, a scale value of 100 indicates a zoom value of 100%. Scroll values left and top are in a coordinate system where 0,0 represents the top left corner of the visible page, regardless of document rotation.

    ../test.pdf#zoom=scale
    ../test.pdf#zoom=scale,left,top

    Set the view of the displayed page, using the keyword values defined in the PDF language specification. See the PDF Reference. Scroll values left and top are floats or integers in a coordinate system where 0,0 represents the top left corner of the visible page, regardless of document rotation. Use the page command before this command.

    ../test.pdf#page=pagenum&view=Fit
