For some reason, DSS suddenly started enlarging/zooming my final stacked images. Has anyone else had this issue?

Any chance you have drizzling turned on?

No such issue here.

 

Suddenly started...?

 

I guess it depends what you mean by enlarged/zoomed, and what things you changed in settings.  As noted, drizzling can enlarge files to super size.  Is it possible you drew a custom rectangle for stacking?  That could possibly be what you see as a zoom effect.  And could also maybe be accidental and thus "suddenly."  If so you can check main stacking settings to see if that happened, and turn it back off.

This.  Sounds like maybe you checked the "drizzle" option.  This will not only enlarge the files both visually and in file size, but also take a bazillion times longer to process.
