Adjust borders of scanned document

Explorer | Level 3

I have just started to use the scan documents function with my iPad.  It works well, except for one part.  When I want to adjust the the borders of my scanned document, the image presented on my large iPad screen is very small, almost too small to work with easily.  Is there a way to make this image almost full-screen for the purpose of adjusting borders?  Thanks.

Hi @HollowayHobie, thanks for joining the Community!

Could you let me know what iPad you’re using, and the version of the Dropbox mobile app and iOS? Does rotating the screen allow you a larger view of the scan?

Could you forward a screenshot showing an example of what you’re experiencing?

Keep me posted!

I'm using iPad Pro 2nd generation with 12.9 inch screen.  I just updated the Dropbox app 2 days ago, so I believe I'm using the current version 176.2.  I'm using iOS 13.3.1.  I generally do all of my scans in portrait orientation. Rotating the screen to landscape does not make the image larger.   Attached is a screenshot of the adjust borders screen of a scan I did a few minutes ago.  Thanks.

You can’t attach files on the forum, only images. Try uploading the image again using this option.

Thanks for the image, @HollowayHobie.

As of yet, it isn’t possible to increase the size of the scanning window, however, I’ve noted your feedback in our system.

If you wish, you can share this idea here in order for other users to vote on it so the dev team can be informed.
