b. Zoom Tools

VUE’s Interactive Zoom tool enables authors to quickly zoom any node to full-screen mode with a single click. In addition, clicking while holding down the shift key will further zoom in to the image content of the selected node.

  1. On the menu bar, select the Interactive Zoom Tool (the third or bottom-most magnifying glass on the fly out menu). The cursor takes the shape of a magnifying glass.
  2. Click the node to be zoomed to full-screen. The node is zoomed to full-screen.
  3. To continue to zoom in on the node, hold the Shift key and click. The node is magnified.
  4. To return to the map, release the Shift key and click. The map is returned to normal zoom.

In general:

To zoom in: Press Ctrl and + (Cmd and + on the Mac)

You can zoom in or out on the map by pressing the Alt key (Cmd key on Mac) to enable scrollzoom, which enables zooming with the mouse scroll wheel.
