On Mac, Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8.4), I open a few pdf files with Preview. I can see all the pdf documents on the left side. I click on one (say abc.pdf), and then in the reading area I scroll down. If I then click another file (x.pdf), and then go back to the original (abc.pdf), Preview has automatically scrolled it to the first page.
I searched a bit and was surprised to see no references to a similar issue, which makes me assume that this is not a common problem. Would you be able to give me any advice on how I can have Preview retain the last read page on each document.
p.s. Only reasonably close wording in the settings is for "On opening new documents: Start on the last viewed page". And that is checked.
