Is it possible to see a full page Pdf by default without having to zoom out several times?

Thank you!

I see now @acan69 - thanks for elaborating on this one (your English is great by the way). I just saw you posted your question under the Paper section; that's why I jumped up the gun there - apologies for that.

Truth is that I bumped into the same behavior when previewing my PDF files on our website. Therefore, I'll pass your comments on to our team that handles the previews on our website in my internal feedback report to let them know about this (I've put your request on our list for future consideration).  

Please let me know if you have any other feedback or questions.

In the meantime, as you mentioned, you can zoom out to preview the whole page and the comments on the file in question or even have your browser default to a specific zoom level when opened perhaps?

I hope this helps to some extent Andrea.

 there Andrea - how are you today?

First off, thanks so much for using Paper and helping us make it better. 

As this is not currently an option, i.e. to have an embedded PDF file previewing  from within a Paper doc by default in full screen mode, I'm passing your comments on to our dev team as a feature request - thank you for this feedback.

If there's anything else you'd like to ask or add in the meantime, please let me know @acan69!

Thanks Walter, but my problem is not to see the Pdf document in full screen mode but in full page by default without having to zoom out. This even without being in Paper.

This is because I have to view many Pdf and every time before starting to view the comments I have to click two or three times to zoom out to see the whole page. I do not know if I could explain myself, but you have to apologize, I'm Italian and I do not know if I'm writing well in English. Thanks again.

When Zoom in lose left side of page

New member | Level 2

Why is it when I zoom in I can't scroll over to see the left side of the page? What if the item I needed to zoom in on was on the left side? Out of luck?

Hi @toddrader; how are you today?

 

Can you please clarify what platform are you noticing this on and what kind of device? 

 

A screenshot would also help so please feel free to send us one as well. 

 

Thanks!
