When creating a map, by default it will zoom in automatically to show only the area included in the spreadsheet - fit all your entered countries in your map’s data table in one screen. Useful if you are focusing on a smaller area of a larger map (for example, a couple US states or certain region of countries in a World map).
To change/disable that:
❶ Select your map and expand the Map properties tab in the right sidebar
❷ Toggle the Auto-Zoom option.
NOTE: the Hide missing areas setting below will also become useful if you want to show only a few entries in a larger map.
You can also set the zoom level manually:
❶ Hover your map and click the Zoom and resize button in its top right corner
❷ Set your desired zoom by using the + and - buttons in the top left corner. You can also move the visible map area by clicking and dragging.
By default, all maps can be zoomed - when viewer will hover a map, zooming buttons will appear in its upper left side.
However, you can disable this option, so viewers could not change how your map looks like:
❶ Select your map (one click)
❷ Expand the Map properties tab in the right sidebar
❸ Disable the Zoom controls option.
This is particularily important if you have placed objects (text fields, icons etc.) on top of your map - since the objects are constant, they won't move together with zooming map.
