Adjust the zoom factor with the mouse wheel

Post by darth_fader » Wed Jun 06, 2012 11:12 am

I would like to adjust the zoom factor of the UI by holding the CTRL key and using the mouse wheel like you can do in e.g. all browsers, adobe reader, office, etc.

Absolutely! It's a pain to have to go into preferences to zoom the display. A lot of users on 13" screens would get a lot of use from this function.

Anyway to get finer control over this? It Zooms too much when you use this option ( On PC ).

I'm aware that having zoom assignable to a mouse wheel, is a much requested 'feature'.

There was some hack floating around for this...but I can't seem to find it :(

We're talking about a different type of zoom. It changes the scale of the display so that you can see more tracks/clips etc. Go into the Live preferences to have a look at it.
