Simple Problem: My Overview Map Is Too Small

Hi guys. Thanks for this really fantastic tool. I'm just getting started setting up a Gigapixel StoryMap for an upcoming web page. You can see my draft here:

The image on the left side of the first slide--I understand this is called the overview--is too small. I'd like it to fill the left side of the screen, if possible. Is there a simple way to fix this?

    Hi, I'm having exactly the same problem. Did you get a solution for this? I'm aware Storymap works best if the geographic area is small, but I would like to use it to do a piece that highlights cities around the world, and not being able to control the zoom of the maps is proving very annoying.

    Thank you!

    I have the same problem, not using gigapixal. The overview map seems to show up zoomed in on a random location. Makes it ugly and confusing. Anyone have any help?
