If the page cannot be displayed in full, because of the magnification used 
and the page size, Acrobat will scroll up, if needed, to show the 
target  in the upper left -- even if Single Page mode is used. It will not 
scroll up to the extent of showing a portion from the following page, however.

Indeed, TimeSavers can't "fix" this. It is possible technically to add a 
function that will suppress the coordinates info, so that links would point 
to a page rather to than to a specific location on a page. This is the case 
with PDFs authored in InDesign -- bookmarks & links created automatically 
from TOC entries use named destinations which store the page number but not 
the horizontal/vertical coordinates of the specific item within that page. 
I personally think that this is a limitation rather than a feature.

Rick's suggestion relates to the possibility of settings PDF defaults 
automatically upon distilling, with TimeSavers + Defaults Assistant (see for more information).
