Lack of Zoom

I have purchased a couple of comic magazines for my Kindle. Usually the text is OK. But occasionally the magazine goes from Portrait to Landscape and the font boxes can be small.
I have two issues - 1. Kindle wont auto rotate as it will with books. 2. You cannot enlarge the screen as you can with books.
Any help ??

Both orientation and digital content manipulation are controlled and managed by the publisher. It may be that they have deliberately not implemented the necessary code or they forgot or they have no idea how to. Perhaps contacting them and raising the issue will encourage / help them to address it.

I doubt it will help since I assume the images are frozen, but it may be worth downloading the comics in question and reading them on either you Kindle for PC or the Cloud Reader app. If the images are locked then there will probably be little benefit :(

What Kindle would that be?

E-ink Kindles have the option of going to landscape view when in a book - touch the top of the screen and then the 3 horizontal lines on the right of the screen and select landscape.

Thanks Combat Wombat -I think you are right. This is an old magazine and even when I use the Cloud Reader and zoom in with the PC the text cannot cope. I thought I was missing something !

Sorry - its the Kindle app on a Samsung Android tablet.
