Zoom

Using the Mouse Wheel

Please also see ETip: Flowsheet Navigation using Mouse Control.

The Zoom and Pan mouse wheel action will depend on the settings on the Options - General - Mouse Tab, below are explanations for the default settings only:

Pan:

  • The default mouse wheel action is set to Scroll the window vertically, so rolling the mouse wheel will pan the page up/down.
  • To pan around the graphics window, hold down the Mouse wheel and drag the graphics in the required direction.

Zoom:

The user may use CtrlKey.png + Mouse wheel to zoom in or out the Graphics window.

While the Graphics window is active:

  • Hold 'Ctrl' key down and roll the Mouse wheel towards you to Zoom OUT (decrease magnification) at the cursor position.
  • Hold 'Ctrl' key down and roll the Mouse wheel away from you to Zoom IN (increase magnification) at the cursor position.
  • Roll the Mouse wheel while holding 'Ctrl' and 'Shift' key for Zoom IN /OUT at the window centre (ie ignore cursor position).
  • Single click on the mouse wheel button while holding 'Ctrl' to zoom back out to view the full graphics page (same as the zoom all command)

NOTES:

  1. While zoom is active, the mouse cursor changes. You can even zoom in/out and pan with the mouse wheel while busy with some graphics commands such as inserting units.
  2. To change the Mouse wheel action, please see General Options - Mouse
