Hi,
I don't know how I did it but somehow my draft view of my manuscript is in a narrow column. I checked the font settings and they are the same as my other works (default of Palatino 13pt) but the text looks tiny. Does anyone know how to fix this format?
Thank you, Rebecca

Hi,
I am using my IPad model MD788LL/B. I have updated the IOS to version 11.1.1 earlier this week when prompted by Apple.
My Scrivener version is IOS 1.1.2 (1187).
Thank you for any suggestions.
Rebecca

I am assuming you're talking about the "Draft Preview" view. If this is the case, while looking at the preview, try tapping on the gear icon in the upper right corner. You can then toggle "Use editor zoom" on or off.

I notice that if Use Editor Zoom is set (and the zoom is greater than 100%), the draft preview doesn't use the full preview popover width. Or height. Is this what you're noticing? Worse, if the editor zoom is less than 100% (don't laugh; it could happen) now the text in the draft popover is truncated at the right edge.

If this is what you're seeing (and complaining about!), that looks like a bug to me... I'm hoping a moderator will stop in and give us the True Word :-).
So you know where I'm coming from:

• Mac Scrivener 2.9 & 3.0.0, MacBook Air 11, MacOS 10.12.6 (Sierra)
• iOS Scrivener 1.1.4, iPhone 6s, iPad Air 2, iOS 11.2

@rebcarnell, I just saw the comment you posted in the "scrivenings mode" thread. KB has said this is a bug, and he'll fix it in the next release. While we're all waiting for that, all I can suggest for a work-around is playing with the editor zoom (pinch to zoom) to get something you can live with in the Draft Preview, or turning off "use editor zoom" which will leave you with small text, but at least it will use the entire Preview window. Sorry, there's no other separate control of the Preview that I know of.
