Zooming is a feature of the A2 display in general.

For the Oberon subsystem within A2, grab the lower right corner of the 
window with the mouse pointer and stretch bigger. 

Therefore a work pattern with Oberon in A2 is to configure so that the 
Oberon window opens to a fraction of the A2 display. 2/3 for example.
Then grab the lower right corner of the Oberon window and stretch it 
out to the full display.  I guess stretch can be automated.  Don't use 
it often and haven't followed that up.
