Bug Description

Maximise evince with an A4 PDF, hit Best Fit, page fills vertical space, much horizontal space empty. I now have to manually resize the evince window to be narrower until the waste is tolerable. It would be nice if evince itself let me ask it to minimise its window for the current size selected, e.g. 50%. It would do a better job than my manual resize and be quicker.

I'd say that the name "best fit" is not appropriate for what it does. It should be renamed to "fit page height". The "best fit" option should indeed fit the window to the page and fit the page to the size of the screen. But I wouldn't say this is a bug.

"Fit page height" isn't always the case; depends on the aspect ratio of the page and the window.
