Change ActualZoom of PDF Viewer, or force it to load zoomed in? (changing zoom crashes on iOS)

I'm using the PDF Viewer in a app to be used on iPad.


As someone else found in 2017, changing the zoom of the PDF Viewer on iOS tends to crash the app and force it to restart. This happens whether using the built-in controls or making custom zoom controls.


As a workaround, I'd like to have the pdf be zoomed in by default, however even when changing the Zoom attribute, the PDF Viewer always loads to fit the width of the area.


Is there any way to force the PDF Viewer to start zoomed in, perhaps by modifying the ActualZoom attribute?

I don't see anywhere that ActualZoom can be modified.
