DEFINING YOUR ZOOM VIEWS

Defining a Zoom View allows you to zoom into a selected area of your drawing so that you can concentrate on one area at a time for greater control. You can define up to ten different zoom views that can be stored with your drawing. To access the Zoom menu, press ‘Z’ on your keyboard or go to ‘View’ in your menu bar and select one of the zooms.

When defining your zoom view, the screen is divided into nine boxes and a menu with numbers on it appears. Click on the number in the menu that corresponds to the zoom that you are about to define. A large cross hair will be displayed with the cursor at the cross centre. The program will now prompt you to select one corner of the area that you would like to zoom into. Press enter or click to confirm your choice.

The program will next prompt you to select the second corner of the area that you would like to zoom into. As you move the cursor, you will see that it is attached to a box. Position the cursor so that the box surrounds the area that you would like to define and press enter or click.

The box that has been entered will be marked by green lines and will be numbered. The menu of numbers will be displayed so that you can define other views. To do this, simply click on another number or exit the function by clicking anywhere on the screen outside of the number menu.

Once you have defined your zoom views, you can access a pre-defined view by selecting ‘Zoom View’ in the Zoom menu in order to access the sub-menu of numbers. Click on the number that corresponds to the view you would like to zoom into. The program will now automatically zoom into the chosen window. If you have not defined any views, a default view will be selected. To return your drawing to its original unzoomed state, go to ‘View – Zoom Paper’.

When you load your drawing, your last zoom is available immediately. You can therefore step back through the last ten zooms by accessing the Zoom Last function in the Zoom menu. You can also step forward through zooms. Once you have defined your views, zooming in and out of your drawing is quick, easy and effortless.
