    I have gone back 20 or 30 pages and do not see this issue, so sorry if it has been discussed previously. Occasionally, I will be wandering around either the Internet or other app. Suddenly the app icons and everything associated with the screen double or triple in size. I understand squeezing and expanding the screen to resize, but when this unwanted resizing occurs, I can do nothing about it and have to shut down and reboot the ipad. Any thoughts?

    On a web page or inside other apps, double tapping the screen usually zooms in, repeat it and it zooms out. If you have one finger on the screen and with another you swipe to scroll up, sometimes this will accidentally cause the screen to enlarge, just pinch two fingers together to close.

    Also it may be possible that you have the zoom enabled (settings app > general > accessibility > zoom). When you double tap the screen with three fingers it zooms in the entire screen (menu, keyboard, and all). Make sure this is off and not causing your problems

    I am impressed with the immediate and thoughtful response to this issue. After checking my General-accessibility-zoom, sure enough, it was on. Thank you so much! Now if you could only cure my hitting the "n" instead of the space bar! LOL!
