In addition to using Markers to help us navigate more quickly, we can easily change or scroll in Zoom options. On a Mac holding Command will convert the main tool into a Hand Grabber tool so that you can move your window left, right, and up and down. The same thing applies on Windows by holding Ctrl. If you hold Command+Option on a Mac, or Ctrl+Alt on Windows the same tool will turn into a magnifying glass, so you can zoom out by moving the cursor to the left, zoom in by moving it to the right, and zoom out and in by moving the cursor up and down.
Note that moving the cursor up and down with the Zoom tool will only zoom in and out on the track over which the cursor is placed. In addition to using the Scroll tool and Zoom tool functions that we learned about earlier with Markers we can also use a few key commands to move forward, backwards, up and down within our session. On a numeric keypad if you press the number 6, your view will jump 1 to the right, the number 4 will jump you back to the left, number 2 will move you down and number 8 will move your view up.
You can also turn on and off Auto Scrolling like we learned about earlier, if you want your page view to change as you're playing back to always show you the section of the arrangement that is being played. It's often useful to leave this option off when you're editing so that the part that you're editing is not jumping out of view while you are trying to work on it. As we'll learn later you can assign shortcut keys to these items that you use most frequently.
