Desktop mode needs to be fixed

Since you can’t do things like fully operate packages from the mobile version you need to open desktop mode. Unfortunately I can’t get it to work in landscape mode and I also can’t zoom in and out so it’s difficult to use. The biggest thing that needs to be fixed is that it zooms in when you touch a text field (and brings up the keyboard) but there’s seemingly no way to zoom back out after.

There’s a workaround for using the desktop

The new iPad version of DSM Mobile is a bit strange. The DSM desktop is larger than the iPad screen. Top-level DSM windows can’t be moved or resized on the DSM Mobile desktop, so parts of a window may be off-screen, making vital parts of a DSM app’s GUI inaccessible. My previous review concluded that the iPadOS app was therefore useless, but I have found a workaround. If you tap on the DSM window’s full screen decoration, the program (File Manager, Package Manager, and so on) will completely fill the DSM desktop space as bounded by the iPad’s screen, and will recompute its geometry correctly for that space. Therefore, all of the program’s controls will be laid out within the space, and will be accessible. I don’t find that to be as intuitive as being able to resize and move desktop windows, and to scroll those windows’ contents horizontally and vertically, but the one-window-at-a-time full screen model is completely usable; I just need to get used to it. The GUI of the iPhone iOS app is significantly different, and its lack of support for landscape mode encourages the use of the built-in tools rather than an attempt to do any work in desktop mode.
