I'm having issues w/ mouse-wheel zoom in PP X6. I have a dual monitor configuration and it doesn't seem to matter which monitor I'm on. It just goes crazy when I zoom in and it does NOT zoom where my mouse cursor is.
This is truly driving me nuts, because I use the mouse-wheel zoom feature religiously.
Can someone please verify that they also have the issue? Or is this just me? Just a simple test will answer everything.
Sometimes the image is not perfectly centered when
I use the scroll wheel for zooming. (It jumps about an inch.) Mostly
it works fine.
Did you check the mouse wheel setting. Go
TOOLS > OPTIONS > DISPLAY > ACTIONS FOR MOUSE WHEEL (at bottom of
dialog) > choose ZOOM from the drop down list.
If that doesn’t work, you may have to reset the workspace by holding
down F8 at start up.
Yes. I already mentioned that setting up above and I have it set to exactly that. To be clear, I *am* zooming when I scroll. The problem is that it doesn't zoom to the appropriate X, Y coordinate, which is creating a very crazy, squirrely behavior.
I just want it to zoom at the cursor. That's how it's always worked in the past. It doesn't matter what the document dimensions are. It doesn't matter how far you're already zoomed in or what. If you have a photo of someone's face and you put your mouse cursor over their pupil and zoom in with the scroll wheel then you should be ON their pupil, even when you're so close you can see the pixel grid.
This is how it's supposed to work. Is nobody else having the same problem?
You are correct. In PP, zooming with the mouse is relative to the center of the open bitmap window, and not centered upon the mouse position over the bitmap as in DRAW. (In my haste, I assumed that you were zooming in DRAW, in my last post here.)
My PP workaround is rather simple. When I zoom in on a bitmap, if I am not where I want to be, in relation to the mouse on the bitmap, then I hit the keyboard 'N' and navigate to the appropriate area of the bitmap. It is an extra step, but I have always worked that way (N for navigate on enlarged page/bitmap).
