I want to prevent "Preview" PDF viewer from opening the PDF's with sidebar. Trying to disable the sidebar, can't find anything that allows it to be disabled. I know how to disable the sidebar after the fact, but I find it annoying because it takes up space and is useless and I am constantly having to hide it. Can I just disable it from the preferences, that way when my PDF opens the sidebar is not there? Looked but couldn't find anything.

Preview PDF Viewer, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
