Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Power zooming with the Hand tool, part of Introducing InDesign.
- In this movie, I'll introduce you to the…Power Zoom, which allows you to quickly…move through a multi-page document.…I'm going to start by pressing control plus,…or command plus on a Mac a few times, to zoom in.…Now I've showed you in the previous movie how…you can press and hold the space bar…to access the hand tool on the fly.…That allows you to drag your document around on screen.…It's very likely that at some point…you're going to experience a different behavior.…That is, instead of dragging the document…when you press the space bar and click,…you end up seeing a red rectangle around your cursor.…
This is the Power Zoom feature at work.…Notice that I can move that rectangle to…a different location in order to change the…portion of the page that I see on screen.…Now the reason that you're getting the Power Zoom…is that instead of space bar dragging, that is…holding the mouse button down and immediately…moving your mouse to a new location.…Instead, InDesign perceives view is holding the…mouse button down and not moving…
