Zooming

By default, Corel Painter opens a document at 100% magnification, but you can change the level of magnification by zooming. You can zoom in and out using the Magnifier tool, reset magnification, or zoom to fit the screen. You can even zoom in and out while working with other tools.

To zoom in

1 Do one of the following:

• Hold down Command + Spacebar (Mac OS) or Ctrl + Spacebar (Windows). The Magnifier cursor shows a plus sign (+), indicating that you are increasing magnification (zooming in).

2 Click or drag in the document window.

When you drag, Corel Painter chooses the magnification level that most closely conforms to the selected area and centers the screen view on that area.

The document's magnification level appears in the document window's title bar.

To zoom out

1 Do one of the following:

• In the toolbox, click the Magnifier tool and hold down Option (Mac OS) or Alt (Windows).

• Hold down Option + Command + Spacebar (Mac OS) or Alt + Ctrl + Spacebar (Windows).

The Magnifier cursor shows a minus sign (-), indicating that you are decreasing magnification (zooming out).

2 Click in the document window.

Each click reduces the magnification to the next level, as defined in the Zoom Level at the bottom of the image window.

You can also zoom in or out by moving the Scale slider, typing a value in the Scale box at the bottom of the image window, or choosing an option from the Zoom Level pop-up menu on the property bar.

To zoom using the Magnifier tool

1 In the toolbox, click the Magnifier tool.

2 Choose a zoom level from the Zoom Level pop-up menu on the property bar.

To reset magnification to 100%

• Double-click the Magnifier tool.

To zoom to fit the screen

• In the toolbox, double-click the Grabber tool >.

Corel Painter generates a view of the entire document to fit the size of your screen.

To access the Magnifier tool while any other tool is selected

• Press Command + Spacebar (Mac OS) or Ctrl + Spacebar (Windows), and click to zoom in; press Command + Option + Spacebar (Mac OS) or Ctrl + Alt + Spacebar (Windows), and click to zoom out.
