PDF files and inline viewing enormous and cannot be reduced in Canvas

Jump to solution

Hello, 

Recently, the high resolution files I have scanned from art history text books are opening up in inline viewing as enormous so that to read the text students have to scroll across page in a way that is not conducive to clean reading. This is a new issue. I had been scanning same type of documents, same resolution a week ago with no issue.  I have tested to see if there is any view function to reduce view size in Canvas but it appears that either that function is not working or the document (as huge as it is being displayed) is in the smallest view format. 

Please help. I have Adobe premium and have already optimized for flat viewing.  

Kindly,

Cassandra

Hi Cassandra747, 

I'm not an expert at this, but I do wonder if the image size you are scanning has been changed.  Resolution isn't the same as image size. You may simply need to resize the images. 

You might also view the the pages with a different web browser to see if that makes a difference.

Thank you so much Adventurer II. You are quite correct and I succeeded using an IOS resizing app.
