Default Applet Size

Hi I was wondering if there was a way to select a default applet size when uploading to geogebra tube. When I am uploading it comes up as being quite huge. I can adjust it but that takes a bit of tweaking since adjuring the applet size does shrink the construction thingy I made and tends to cut off part of it that I don't want cut off.


I am new to all of this, so I'm not sure if this is a setting within Geogebra or if it has to do with my screen resolution. Sorry if this is posted somewhere else already. I couldn't find it when I searched.


Thanks for your help!

Probably the best solution is to design the applets so that they are the size you want (ie make the GeoGebra window smaller before you start)


Another more complicated solution is to use Corner[1] and Corner[3] in the axes settings - see attached file. The axes will change as the window is resized (care needed if you want x:y = 1:1 :) )

It doesn't matter what size I make the Geogebra window. When I try to embed my app, the size is always the same: 684x629. That's way too large.

Never mind - I see now how to adjust it.

Thanks murkle. I firgured out the window adjustment right after I posted. I might take a gander at the other hint as soon as I get a free moment......could be a while :D

This really isn't an adequate solution. First the warning about having made your applet very large doesn't specify what sizes ratios might be nice for different devices - in fact no info is given about what is considered "very large" so the user is left to try random sizes until one does upload with the warning. Second, the window size doesn't show as you resize so it's just random trial and error to get any particular pixel size. Thirdly, when re-uploading an applet after tweaking, the old size is usually maintained rather than the new window size being pulled in so that the user is forced to adjust the window twice in effect (and sometimes the adjustment of the html window size randomly causes one of the graphics views to vanish at least in the editing window). Finally, it is no longer even clear how one should revise an applet that has been uploaded because the only option seems to be "add" and it's not really clear whether a second geogebra applet will appear below the first or whether the uploaded file will replace the previous upload.
