In this chapter, we're going to focus in on a few shortcuts that we can use when working with the Map module. And in this movie, I want to highlight a few shortcuts that you can use for zooming in and out on the map, and also for changing the overall map style. Well, one of the ways that you can zoom in and out on the map is by pressing the Plus and Minus keys on your keyboard. Press the Plus key, and you can zoom in; press the Minus key, and you can zoom out. Another method that you can use is, on a Mac, press and hold the Option key, on Windows, press and hold the Alt key, then go ahead and click and drag over an area of the map; that will then zoom into that area.
By doing this, we can click and drag over small or large areas in order to zoom into different areas on the map. Well in this case, I zoomed in too far, so I'll press the Minus key on the keyboard to zoom out, so I can see where I want to go. I want to go to New York, so then hold down Option or Alt; Option on a Mac, Alt on Windows, and then click and drag over that area, and you can see how we can zoom in straight to that area. What about changing the different map styles? Well you can do that by pressing Command on a Mac, Control on Windows, 1 through 6.
If you press Command or Control+1, you can see we have the hybrid view. Command+2 or Control+2, that's roadmap, and so on, and so forth. And here, all that you need to do is just to press and hold Command or Control, and then to press those different number keys 1 through 6 until you've selected the map style that you want to work with.
