Layout default settings


I have just upgraded to PDF Architect 8.
To say the truth I like the old interface much more. In the new one the top bars take too much place. I must get used to it.
The problem I have is related to the default page layout. I use [Options] > [Layout] to change the default layout. I want to set it to [Fit Page]. The setting is saved but in spite of it all new PDF files are always opened in [Fit Width] layout. Even after restarting of the application.
The settings from [Options] jus does not work.

Any workaround or a way to fix the problem?
