In this video, learn the navigation tools and how these values can be changed or edited to fit personal preferences.
- [Instructor] The navigation tools…in Altium Designer are really quite simple…and easy to use.…So I have a few options.…First, I could navigate over to the view dropdown here.…And I have a bunch of navigation tools listed here.…So for example, I can zoom in or zoom out.…And notice I have the hotkeys there, as well.…So I can just click to zoom in,…click to zoom out, and so on.…
And I have a few other options here,…for example, zoom to a selected area,…fit a document, and so on.…However, I rarely use these navigation tools…because really all the same navigation tools are right…within my mouse gestures.…So for example, to scroll up or down,…I can just use my mouse scroll wheel here.…Or similarly, I can just click on the arrows here.…
And if I just do the same while holding the control key,…so that's moving the scroll mouse wheel in…while holding the control key,…that will zoom me in.…And similarly, holding the control key…and moving my scroll wheel…in the opposite direction will zoom me out.…I also have a few other options here.…
