Title says it. I have a lot of html files that I read on my phone. No issues. However, when trying to view them on my iPad, I CANNOT get them to display in full screen! Suggestions? Thanks!

Hey there @poetgirl115! Currently, there doesn’t seem like there’s a direct way to getting an .html file to preview full screen currently. Thanks for the feedback on this though!
 
I’ve moved your post to Share an idea so as to keep track of it and I’ve made sure to pass your comments along to the dev team for review. Let me know of any other comments or thought you'd like me to forward, or if you have any other questions in general. Cheers!

OK, right now browsing files happens in a narrow column on the left. Even if no file is selected the column stays narrow, and truncates file names that are too long for it. This is the first thing that should be fixed: use the whole screen for file browsing. Truncating file names is bad, so please don't do it.

When I select a PDF for preview, there is no possibility to change the zoom level. This is the second thing to be fixed: start with a view that shows the whole page, let us zoom in and out by double-tapping; and then let us close the file currently being previewed, exposing again the full screen file list.

The third shortcoming is the measly support for drag-n-drop.

Someone from support suggested I shared those "features" with the community. I really think these are very basic UI shortcomings that should be addressed by a core team dedicated to the best UX possible without us asking. But never mind, here we are, can You please fix the app?
