I evaluating the trial version of EMS and have it set to integrate with Visual Studio 2012. In my testing, the emulator was not honoring the viewport meta tag. Specifically, it always shows the page zoomed in. Removing the viewport meta tag should have forced the browser to show the page zoomed out. Are there any known issues around the viewport functionality.

    Yes, at this time the simulator is tailored to those building specific mobile apps targeting zoomed in mode.

    Just experienced the same problem - sadly it's a blocker to me buying the product :-(

    Can you explain? In your case do you want to see the site zoomed out (e.g. you are not doing any specific work targeting mobile) or is there another aspect? Just want to make sure I capture the feedback.
