No Viewfinder to locate the content/work in the canvas(White sticky notes only)

1. Describe the bug/issue you’re running into?
I zoomed out my work and now I’m unable to find it on the canvas. I need view finder to see where exactly my work is on the canvas. Unfortunately, I zoomed out and it took me a while to figure out where my content was on the huge FigJam canvas. This is happening only when you use White colour sticky notes

Workaround : Drag the canvas from end-to-end and it will get selected

2. Are you able to consistently reproduce it? If so what are the steps?
It is consistently vanishing whenever I zoom out

3. Share a screenshot, recording, console log, link to the file, etc.

4. Is the issue only happening in desktop app or a specific browser , or both?

5. What OS/version and/or browser/version are you using?
Mac OS Big Sur

Hey Lasya,

Thanks for the feedback, a viewfinder or mini map would definitely be useful! Since this is more of a feature request can you start a new topic in the Feedback category about this?

Another way you can find your work after being zoomed out too far is to press Shift+1 on your keyboard for “Zoom to Fit”. You’ll also see it in the zoom menu on the top righthand corner:


Hey Darren,

I tried zoom to fit earlier, it does work when there is only one work frame. When there is more than one work frame in different positions across the canvas the shift +1 doesn’t work. Also this is more problematic while using white coloured sticky notes.
