1) the first feature (half size Scree) renders a screen with in a

2) the second feature has the server reduce the screen area which save
3) The third option (Scale Viewer Window By) allows you specifiy the
ratio used in the scaling... and yes, you can even enter ratios bigger
than one like 2/1, which makes the viewer twice the original size, and
forces a lot of scrolling!
