Detailed Explanations for Advanced Settings

Change scale Change the scale of your GeoGebra applet (default scale is 1). Preserve aspect ratio Preserve the aspect ration of the applet when changing its size. Enable Right Click, Zooming and Keyboard Editing Allow users to right-click (MacOS: Ctrl-click), zoom, or edit the applet using their keyboard.

Note: In case of a GeoGebra Task, this option is checked by default. Show Input Bar Display the Input Bar at the bottom of the Graphics View or the Algebra Input in the Algebra View (if visible).
