Zoom to fit issue

Sep 08, 2022

We want our visually impaired audience to be able to zoom the screen. But are seeing issues.
1. By default the zoom controls in Chrome and Edge SHRINK the screen when the % zoom is increased. Which seems backwards. 

I can see that the Frame is what's getting enlarged, and the stage shrunk.   Users would want to see items on the stage larger, not the frame.

2, If we enable the "zoom to fit" feature. The browser zoom features work correctly, BUT it initially shrinks the stage. So it is making the screen smaller to begin with.

not enabled = backward/confusing browser controls
enabled = browser controls work, but stage is smaller and "average" sighted users now need to zoom

Is anyone using this feature successfully? Maybe i'm missing something. Thank you

Hi Teri, 

Thanks for reaching out! 

Scroll bars appearing when using the zoom to fit feature is normal. You can check out this article which explains why the scroll bars appear when this feature is used: 

"If learners zoom in far enough, vertical and/or horizontal scroll bars will appear around slides."

If this behavior is different from what you're currently experiencing, feel free to reach out to our support team by opening a case so we can take a look at what's happening.
