pinch to zoom ionic popover for PDF

Hello, I found a good solution for pdf viewing inside the AR experience

https://community.ptc.com/t5/Vuforia-Studio/Displaying-Accessing-Files-e-g-PDF-in-AR-Application/m-p/595901#M5162
The only thing (on the iOS app) that seems to lack is a pinch to zoom features.

any idea on how to implement it?

 

many thanks

Great! Thank you.

Is there a global repository of custom widgets? Where can I find them?

 

So far, I know all officially supported widget are provided with the studio installation. Some widgets - developed as customer widgets e.g. from PTC  presales team requires some time to be cooperated in the default installation. There are some unofficial GitHub repositions I know. But there is no 100% support warranted that they would work in the new releases
