Never mind.  I just modified a new document to the way I wanted to see it and saved it on top of the default.svg file.  I feel embarrassed, but chalk one up for the KISS approach...

to adjust the default zoom level on the default document opened by inkscape? 

I've been playing with some settings in the default.svg file.  I managed to get it to open a 500 x 500 px page with no boarder.  I'd like to have the page zoomed to fit the screen.  I see a setting of inkscape:zoom = "0.35" but that doesn't seem to work as adjust in the zoom level in inkscape has no effect on this value in the xml editor. 

Thanks for the help in advance.
