Hey forum

I just got my my Mac Studio 2023 model. The Mac is running Sonoma 14.2, love the performance / port selection etc. Due to my eye sight issues, I need to be able to zoom a lot to be able to read / navigate the system. What I have noticed on Sonoma if you go to zoom in, it only zooms one display not both like it does in Monterey.

If I click on the other screen and zoom it then only zooms on that screen not both displays at once. I know this is some "new feature " but does any one know how to turn off this multi-zoom feature?

Yep. It's a new feature. I read about it somewhere, not sure where.
It was presented as an improvement.
I don't know, but I'm guessing it's not a thing you can choose to turn on or off.

I don't have a second screen. What happens if you select this button?

The "feature" sure isn't an improvement it's a pain but it is what it is.

Yes I the zoom setting turned on for both displays, yet it zooms the screens independently not together
