Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Zooming and panning, part of Learning AutoCAD for Mac.
…The Drawing tool in AutoCad for Mac is designed to…allow you to draft your objects in full one-to-one scale.…As such, working in a space that is…almost infinite means you need to master moving around.…Which we accomplish by panning and zooming.…Panning is similar to other programs and is signified with a…small gloved hand, and can be called on from the View menu.…The normal Pan tool is here as real-time panning.…And lets you click and drag to move the view of your drawing.…
This does not affect the actual geometry of the drawing…in any way, and is only for changing your view.…The complementary tool is zoom, and is also found under the View menu.…There are 11 options here and most are pretty self explanatory.…Real time allows you to click and drag in the drawing…area, and you can see a small plus and minus symbol on…the signs of the magnification eye glass.…This signifies which direction to drag to either zoom in or zoom out.…In our case, up to zoom in and down to zoom out.…
I can also zoom to a specific window or object.…
