Web Object

Hi there,

I used a web object for my latest module and I have had so many reports where the web object is appearing way bigger than normal, overlapping the player and the navigation buttons.

It turns out this occurs when the participant's browser is zoomed higher than 100%.

I was wondering if there was going to be a fix for this or if there is some way to stop this from happening.

Kind Regards,

Dean Peters

Hey Dean,

I don't think there is a fix but there might be some stuff you can do to either force or encourage folks to set their window to 100% zoom:

- With some Javascript and CSS-fu, you can control browser zoom in *some* browsers. Not reliable in all:

- If this is a serious problem, you could either visually cue the user to resize their browser or detect zoom and notify them that they need to change it:
