Full screen on ipad

As of today, for some reason I am struggling to get a full screen on my ipad to view files and foldersd. I used to be able to click off the left hand side search column but now I can’t click it off. Any ideas as to how to do this.

SOLVED!!! To make the document full screen, single-tap on the sides or top of the document. In the past a double-tap would do the trick, however, since the update that double-tap is now for magnifying the document.

Hi @Vixen20, thanks for joining the Community!

 

Is there an option on the right when viewing the file to expand the screen to show the file in full?

 

A screenshot of what you're seeing would help me greatly!

Good day Christopher.

 

Thanks for your reply 🙂 I have sent you two example pictures. The first one is of the split page. The second one is of how it looks when I double click on the file that I want to open and that it zooms in, but stays in 'split mode'.

 

I cant see any other icon/method to make it full screen ( it used to do this automatically when I double clicked on the file  I wanted to enlarge ) but it keeps splitting it now, regardless.   

 

Any advice?

I am having the same problem. It started after the most recent update. I can not either make the document come up in Full Screen, or make the file list on the left go away. This is on an iPad with the latest iOS.

Yes exactly! Glad I am not alone in this, lol.

Getting this resolved is critical to me. Dropbox always reduced docs to fit on the right 2/3's of the screen while the file list occupies the left third.  Before the last update I could view my docs full size by double tapping the top of the page to make the file list would go away. Worked great for YEARS. There is no button or gesture that will accomplish that now.
