Zoom in element preview window?

Postby jason888 on 07/13/2012, 1:26 pm

How do I zoom in and out on items in the preview window in Element? Andrew does it in the on-line tutorials. Anyone know? (I'm on a mac)

Also, I thought there'd be some sort of tutorials or documentation that came with the plug-in, but there was none. Anyone else get anything with their download?

The wheel on your mouse should zoom in & out.

I don't have a scroll wheel on my mouse (I'm on a mac). Is there an alternative way?

Oh wait, I'm sorry, I just found it by accident. I was trying to hold down the command or option button to do it. If you dont use either - the magic mouse can zoom in and out.

Thanks for the quick replies.

I'm also on a Mac but I use a Wacom tablet. Any idea how to do the zoom on a tablet?

With intuos5 you can swipe 2 fingers up and down. Else use the Scrool Ring on the side. But it could be nice if it was possible to hold cmd or shift and drag with the mouse / pen to zoom in and out . Could put a request up.

Well, that sounds like a great excuse to get an Intuos 5. i only have an Intuos 2.

I would like a keyboard shortcut, if possible. where do I submit the suggestion?

thanks,
