let us have more zoom levels, the existing steps won't fit the needs anymore
- best would be a user setting like 164%
- having an option 'fit to window' or 'fit to screen' ('fullscreen mode') would be great
I really like the zoom levels on excel. You can enter zoom percentage.
I like the modern look of the zoom bar in the bottom bar.
With this option there should be script steps that mirror these options.
Why not just give us a magnifying glass tool like illustration programs?
Just curious: why 164%? I understand 141% (double).
means: Let us enter what value we want. Could be that a solution for customer X is designed for 21" iMacs - the one windows user joins who has a bigger resolution - so 164% would just fit...
when I'm working on a keynote presentation on my 27" display and I have to do some editing on the road on my MacBook Air, I will adjust/reduce the magnification that it fits - not 150%, not 200% - btw. there is a button to 'fit on screen'
Absolutely need this! Most of our windows customers, Excel an Word-Users absolutely don't understand this 100%, 150% etc. limitation. Most of our customers work on windows. Some with 1024 or 1280, or 1440 on Laptops. It's not about just maximizing the interface and see some stretched Name-fields getting 10cm or longer. It's also about getting the window to show some 11pt font in 12pt or 13pt, so that an older user can read better. And the existing FMP-Windows-function "resice to fit screen" does not help. It calculates wrong, so that it's filled on the width, but is to large on the height, so that the lower part of the windows ist outside the visibility. It's really a needed feature - not to get satisfied developers- but to get much more satisfied filemaker users!
Yes, I'm moving from 15 inch to 13 inch Macbook and I want to have the option to reduce layout view to 85% as 75% is too small.
I find it hard to believe that this feature hasn't changed or improved since the very early days of FileMaker. Until 2013, our Org was still using FileMaker Pro 5. It is the same in 2017 for FM 15 as it was in the late 90s in FM 5. smdh
Zoom on selected area (lasso) of layout in Layout mode would also be nice.
++ fit to window... or smaller zoom increments (+/-10%)
My *customers* are requesting more granularity in zoom. Something, for example between 100 and 150%.
I want this scriptable, at least.
Insane this hasn't been implemented. I was gobsmacked when i went to script this for the first time to accommodate the iPad Pro display, after decades of FM development, and to see there wasn't a custom option. Unbelievable.
There‘s also a bug still unresolved:
Anchors / dynamic layout fail with iPhone 6
