Larger window size and zoom out feature

Window size seems restricted vertically, making it difficult to navigate within a document. Full screen mode seems to be planned may help (as long as we can easily still switch to other applications on the PC (e.g. for copy-pasting text), but just a more flexible window size and ability to zoom-out within the document viewer would help navigation.

    Full screen mode does help a bit but mainly that increases width of the document and a very wide document is also not very convenient to read/edit. What would be much better would be to have more efficient use of the vertical space on the screen so more of it is occupied by the document being edited. In particular the feedback forms make very inefficient use of vertical space and a lot of scrolling is needed to review the comments.

    There are several choices available. Full-screen mode (available now - refresh your browser) will strip away the sidebars and stretch the content across the whole screen.

    An alternative is to minimise the sidebars (little arrows on blue squares at bottom of screen), and then use the browser zoom function to zoom in and out. This will retain the 'page width' view but make text larger/smaller.

    Use the browser zoom anyway: we find that on a Portable PC screen it's best to view at 80% zoom, where as on HD (1920x1080) or higher displays it's often best at 100% zoom.
