DevAlpha magnify nightmare!!

I, in retrospect v stupidly, decided to put my DevAlpha B into "magnify mode", an option one sees in accessibility section on the settings page.  I believe the idea here is to allow the visually impaired to better see the screen.  Resolution is halved, as is the field of view. 

 

This simply does not work.  One cannot scroll to see the whole page.  One therefore cannot see the entire page and critical controls therein.  This limits access to certain funcitonality.  Namely, it limits functionality to the screen that allows one to turn "magnify" off.

 

So here I am now with a DevAlpha that shows only half the screen and restricts my ability to turn this off.  The device is now pretty well useless to me.  And I have a lot of work to do on it.  Help!!!!

Re: DevAlpha magnify nightmare!!

Well, solved this.  Simple way is to reverse pinch to expand and then head back to settings and turn the option off.  Seems obvious now, but it was not at all apparent when in the thick of it.  Someone should re-visit this functionality.

 

Sorry for the drama!
