Quick Zoom

The Quick Zoom option, available in the toolbar or the Zoom sub-menu of the View menu, allows the user to:

  • Save zoom coordinates, so that specific views can easily be re-created for screen captures, demonstration purposes, etc.
  • Automatically zoom to the same coordinates in multiple views.

Saving Zoom Coordinates

To save zoom coordinates with the Quick Zoom dialog:

  1. First zoom the view to the desired coordinates.
  2. Select the Quick Zoom option. NOTE:
    • while the Quick Zoom dialog is active, you may still use the regular Zoom options (i.e. Zoom All, Zoom In, Zoom Out, the mouse wheel, etc), to adjust the view further if necessary.
    • you may also enter coordinates in the Quick Zoom dialog, and select the Zoom button in the dialog.
  3. When you have zoomed to the desired location, select the Save button in the Quick Zoom dialog.
  4. You will then see another dialog which allows you to enter a Name for the saved coordinates. NOTE: by default, the filename will appear as the zoom name, however, you may enter any name. Also, a filename extension is NOT necessary, since the coordinates are saved in the registry on your computer.
  5. Select OK in this dialog, and the Name you entered will now appear in the Zoom To list in the Quick Zoom dialog.
  6. Select Done in the Quick Zoom dialog.
  7. The zoom coordinates are now permanently saved. You may now zoom to these coordinates at any time, by selecting Quick Zoom, and selecting the Name of your zoom coordinates, from the Zoom To list in the dialog.

Zooming on Multiple Views

The Quick Zoom settings can be applied to multiple views, as follows:

  1. In the Quick Zoom dialog, select either:
    • All Views (This File) or
    • All Views (All Files)

    from the Apply To list in the Quick Zoom dialog.

  2. Select a Name from the Zoom To list, or enter the desired zoom coordinates.
  3. Select the Zoom button in the Quick Zoom dialog, and the selected zoom coordinates will be applied to all views of the current file, or all views of all files, according to the Apply To selection.

The All Views (This File) option will apply the Quick Zoom settings to all views of the current file, if you have multiple views open for the current file.

The All Views (All Files) option will apply the Quick Zoom settings to all views of all files.
