Setting extent for map in Basic Viewer web mapping application

I've published several maps using the Basic Viewer web mapping application, and the initial extent in the web app is always a little off - shifted a bit east and clipped off on the south end (see attached images).

Web map, saved at this extent:

Same web map, shown in web app at initial extent:

Tweaking the map extent to show the extent of the map where I want it takes a lot of trial and error. I need to figure out not just how many hundredths of a decimal degree or to adjust the min and max Y to shift the map west, but I also need to essentially zoom out and increase the extent in both X and Y directions, since the features are being cut off in the south. And since the web app displays the map in landscape orientation, increasing the extent in the Y direction to account for the increase I need in the X direction is not a 1 to 1 thing. I actually need to increase the extent in the Y direction somewhat more than in the X direction. Figuring out how much is a bit of a mystery - it's totally trial and error. There's got to be an easier way to do this. Any ideas?
