Does Stitch Fiddle not work optimally or having issues using Stitch Fiddle? This pages describes how to fix it.

Close and re-open

Many issues can be easily fixed closing and re-opening Stitch Fiddle. Use the Refresh button of your browser or close the tab or window and navigate to Stitch Fiddle again.

Slow response time / Zoom issues

Make sure zooming using your browser is disabled. In the View menu of your browser, there's an option called "Actual zoom" (or something similar), which disables browser zooming.

When browser zooming is used accidentally, it makes Stitch Fiddle respond very slow, so make sure it is disabled. In some cases, you need to restart your browser before Stitch Fiddle becomes fast again.

Disable browser zoom
