How can we make OneNote to re-size to fit the android phone screen size? (we "pinch" the screen but it goes only so far, not complete).  Note, in Iphone we can "pinch" the OneNote screen and reduce the OneNote to fit the screen.  It seems an Android problem.

Please advice,

Can you be more specific about the problem? Perhaps what version of the application you're on, what type of phone and/or screen size, what version of Android, etc? Perhaps attach a sample file? I can pinch to zoom fine on my Android 6.0 copy of OneNote 16.0.7870.1767.

One of the users gave us the alert and we looked at around 5 android users and all could not pinch to reduce size to fit the android phone screen (the can reduce up to a certain point, but that's it).

Type of phone, screen size, Android version, etc. kind of tough to get since these people are always on the street, but will try to coordinate with them.

But your info of Android 6.0 and OneNote 16.0.7870.1767, we will compare with theirs.

Based on your comment could be version problem? (but OneNote is from Play Store, don't think you can download a previous version from play store); have you seen this behavior with other android with lower version number  of Android and OneNote?

FYI, when we say "pinch" we mean like zoom out on the phone screen.

We also have iPhone and you can zoom out as to place the sheet in full width screen.  Seems it's OS dependent.
