Panning, Scrolling, and Zooming

Panning

There are three ways to navigate your view around the canvas

  1. If you hold down the spacebar that will change the cursor and allow you to pan with the mouse.

  2. If you click on the Move button in the sidebar menu that will also change the cursor and allow you to pan with the mouse.

  3. If you're using a mouse, holding down the mouse wheel can also allow you to pan.

Scrolling

Scrolling around the canvas can be done with two fingers scrolling on the trackpad or using the scrollbars at the bottom and on the right of the canvas itself.

Zooming

There are three ways to zoom in and out of the canvas.

  1. If you're using a trackpad, use two fingers to pinch to zoom

  3. You can use the keyboard shortcuts of Ctrl/Command + to zoom in and Ctrl/Command - to zoom out.
