GUI Design Studio Tip#1: A Great Way to Zoom Around Your Designs

November 4th, 2009

Did you know that you can change the behaviour of the mouse scroll wheel in the “File | Preferences” dialog in GUI Design Studio?

You can set it to zoom in and out or to scroll vertically. You can still get to the alternative function by holding down the Ctrl key. So if the wheel normally zooms, holding down the control key will scroll and vice versa.

Whatever you’re pointing at when you zoom will remain fixed in position on screen so you can quickly point and zoom to focus in on any area of interest.

Don’t forget that if your mouse wheel tilts, this will scroll you horizontally, giving you full control over your view from that little wheel.
