FM Go Layout size and zoom


Hello Filemaker community,

I manage a project management solution for my company. I'm working on new mobile layouts so our employees can work on the road. I have an issue regarding resizing a layout to match different screen sizes (5, 6, 6 Plus) and preventing users to zoom in the layout. 

I know that FM Go automatically resizes layouts to fit the screen resolution. To be sure to have the best visual result on all iPhone models, I plan to make my layouts 1080 x 1980 px to fit the iPhone 6 plus. Resizing on my iPhone 5 works A1.

The problem is that I dont want to user to be able to zoom in or out in the layout. I asked my friend Google, and he suggested me to lock the zoom in a script step. I tried it, but the script step won't let me lock the screen without specifying a zoom level. So when I set the zoom level to 100% and and check the Lock checkbox, the layout is perfect for an iPhone 6 Plus, but way to big for an iPhone 5, 5S or 6. 

My understanding is that those are my options : 

A - Users can zoom in and zoom out. Too bad.

B - Having 3 versions of each mobile layouts, manually adjusted for iPhone 5, 6 and 6 Plus.

C - Making all layouts for iPhone 5 and assuming that the layouts will be blown and pixelated on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

Am I correct? Dose anyone know a way to do what I want? I hate making sacrifices. 

Thanks a lot
