#1242 Automatic cropping on reload


It would be great if, when a document is cropped globally (Cmd+K), it remain cropped after being reloaded. Or else, I have to repeatedly press Cmd+K after each reload, which somewhat diminishes the appeal of auto-reload.

This was already requested in 2009 as ID 2844305, and closed: but I don't understand the comment that was made to justify closing it. The commenter said that "cropping" works on a per-page basis and could never be applied globally. However Cmd+K in Skim currently makes a global, document-wide operation, and does not work on a per-page basis.

My request is thus: could it be made so that documents are automatically cropped on reload?

This could be implemented in different ways:
- Skim could detect when a document is globally cropped (this could be like a flag), and apply such cropping on reload
- Skim could ask whether to "Reload" or "Reload and crop" when detecting that a document has been changed
- Skim could have a preference to automatically crop any document that is opened (my experience is that there is never any case where the Cmd+K cropping is not desirable).
