As of the new update yesterday 1.92 on PS4 for Minecraft I can no longer zoom out on my maps. I created a new map and it is level 0/4. After placing the new map inside the crafting table surrounded by 8 pieces of paper, the map will not craft to a zoomed out version.

  • I don't want to answer my question because im still confused why I cannot zoom out my maps through the crafting table. However, I found when using a cartography table the map zooms out one level for each one piece of paper used. Solution figured out but question unsolved?

  • I am actually also confused. The recipe you described works on bedrock edition, however looks like ps4 is legacy edition? It is pretty confusing

You have to make cartography table and add map to top left then add paper to bottom left then it will use 1 paper per zoom level when you pull it out of right side and then place it on top left to do again. Was kinda pissed about it myself and then I figured it out and I'm still not happy with it especially since when u make a map on the crafting table the normal way with 8 paper and a compass it stills open as a small map.

  • It doesn't really matter, even if you make a 4/4 map, the zoom feature doesn't seem to work properly. I have tried this several times and the 4/4 map will not contain the area the original 0/4 map contained. broke. Jun 17, 2019 at 18:27
