Hi @wsobhi ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to disable the "Zoom in"/"Zoom out" feature within PowerApps Studio?


If you want to disable the "Zoom in"/"Zoom out" feature within PowerApps Studio, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.


If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Hi @v-xida-msft,


Zooming feature is already there on Powerapps Canvas, using two fingers user is able to zoom in\out which makes the application ugly !!. therefore, we would like to disable this feature as it also affect the dropdownlist at the time of selection, screen is automatically do zoom in.

I have shared the video to see the issue in the below link:

Same issue for me on iOS.

@v-xida-msft I don't know when this issue started but it is definitely not a welcomed feature. The zoom is taking place inside the player on iOS. The user can use zoom the screen in and out using pinch zoom. See GIF below. I am testing this on version 3.19083.21. I would consider this an urgent request to fix.

I've got an iPhone SE, and ComboBox set to size 25 font. When I click on the combobox, the application is zooming in substantially. After you pick a selection, you have to click out of the combobox, and then two finger manually zoom out (without clicking on any other part of the application).

@Specoop I hear you. I also have a combo-box using Opens Sans font size 18. When selecting an option it sometimes zooms-in as you describe. I am not sure if it is a double-tap or single select gesture, but it happens as you describe. I have an open ticket with Microsoft's support team and as of yesterday, they suggested increasing the font-size as the solution but did not give any other specifics. The problem is, I need them to confirm which font sizes are problematic and they should inform their customers. In my opinion, if the font-size is the issue, this is a faulty control. I also notice double-tapping a disabled button causes the screen to zoom. So, there is more to this issue than just the combo box. According to MS, PowerApps doesn't even include a feature that should zoom when a control is double-tapped. It sounds like they are a long way off from solving this bug. I believe this bug was introduced when they released the pinch-zoom gesture. If I hear anything useful, I will definitely share it. However, I am starting to lose confidence in their support team at this point.

Yikes. Just started working with a combobox on the iPhone and this zooming thing is horrible. I just voted here to have that disabled or give us an app wide or a per-screen setting. This is a mess.

Yes this bug with autozoom on selection of ComboBox is terrible for users. Thanks @EdHansberry for the link. I'll vote there too now.
Although I think the ComboBox thing can be fixed without disabling the pinch-to-zoom ability. 

TextInputs only autozoom if their font size is too small. However ComboBoxes always autozoom on ios. So there must be something wrong with the properties of PowerApps ComboBoxes where ios 'detects' a small font, even when there is none.
