Changing the Magnification Factor in the Image Editor

By default, the Image editor displays the view in the left pane at actual size and the view in the right pane at 6 times actual size. The magnification factor (seen in the status bar at the bottom of the workspace) is the ratio between the actual size of the image and the displayed size. The default factor is 6 and the range is from 1 to 10.

To change the magnification factor

  1. Select the Image Editor pane whose magnification factor you want to change.

  2. On the Image Editor toolbar, click the arrow to the right of the Magnify tool and select the magnification-factor from the submenu: 1X, 2X, 6X, or 8X.


    To select a magnification factor other than those listed in the Magnify tool, use the accelerator keys.
