Decrease default level of zoom on document previews

Hello Figshare, 

Presently, the preview for documents/PDF's is very "zoomed in" as a default, and we've had a number of complaints/requests over time to change this. Most recently, an academic who has stated that her contacts will not share the link because it's so zoomed in, it's difficult to see what the document is at first glance. They are sending it around by email, which means we don't get the views or downloads, which are measurable for impact. 

Would it be possible, please, to make it so the default level of zoom is far less? 

By perhaps about half, so at least half the page is reasonably visible on the document. 

Thank you!

Best wishes,
