Adjusting documents in the Texas Digital Archive (TDA)

Use the toolbar located at the top of the document to adjust (see Figure 1, below). The toolbar allows you to zoom in and out, rotate, view an image in full screen mode, and search full-text. Note, this only applies to documents. To adjust documents and other types of records that display as images, see the tips for adjusting images.
