    • Hello,

      Thanks for the Edge feedback. Can you tell me how this is failing in Edge? When I look at the JSFiddle you provided, it seems to be identical to the output in Chrome and Firefox.

      Looking forward to your update.

      All the best,
      The MS Edge Team

    • Hello Brad,
      On the JSFiddle, try to use your mouse wheel over the rectangle, you should see the rectangle zoom, but the text will not zoom on Edge, while the text zooms on Chrome and Firefox.
