Quick zoom with Ctrl+scroll-wheel

Quick zoom with Ctrl+scroll-wheel

Prime quite often has features (i.e. tick mark values, subscripts, superscripts) that have tiny fonts. It would be helpful to be able to quickly zoom in and out of the worksheet. Ctrl-0 to reset to 100%. Analog to MS office programs.

Agreed.

Most engineers are used to scroll zoom features of CAD applications and having this feature will be beneficial.

Being able to move around a large worksheet would be helped by having a zoom feature.  I agree with this.

Mathcad Prime has a zoom slider in the lower right corner.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for this suggestion! Mathcad Prime 7.0 did improve the zoom behavior (using the zoom slider) to zoom in on the current page and not on the current position of the carat. However, in Prime 8.0 you will now also be able to zoom in and out using ctrl+scroll wheel.

 

Many thanks,

 

Andy.

Zooming with a mouse/scroll-wheel would be much appreciated.

Please implement this soon. Also, I can't believe there isn't a way to specify the zoom as a keyed input. The only way seems to be the slider control!!

FINALLY figured out a way to get to 100% zoom (since I can't find a place to type it in). I had to use the slider to zoom all the way out (25%) and then in the "plus" symbol which used 5% increments.

 

Would love to have the ability to key in the zoom factor directly, and/or a 100% button.

Hey there!

 

In Prime 7.0 you can double-click the zoom slider control and it will change the zoom level to 130% - which is the default for the application.

 

In Prime 8.0 we've tweaked the + and - zoom buttons such that they round to the nearest 5% when you use them.

 

Adding a user input for zoom is an interesting idea - I'll add it to our list of customer requested functionality.

 

Many thanks,


Andy.

Hello, using Mathcad Prime 7, probably its corrected in newer versions but would be nice to have updat with: 

 

- Zoom in / out: ctrl + mouse scroll

- Reset zoom: ctrl + 0

- Image size transformation: click on an image makes 8 transformation dots to appear instead of 4, then free transform with corner ones, side transform with side ones and proportional transform with shift  / ctrl + drag the dots.

 

Thanks!
