Hi Hélio,

Just try to do a ctrl+mousewheel up/down and you'll be surprised! ;)

Cheers,

And CTRL + 0 returns you to the default zoom level.

I think that only works when you are in the Entity diagram pane, not when you are in the "Interface" tab (when in the "interface" tab, the menu option "Menu"-> "Zoom" is disable) .What I would like is to have that exact same functionality everywhere.

Helio -

It works when you are editing Actions.

If you are trying to zoom in on the WYSIWY(kind of)G editor for Screens, a much better approach is to use the tree view (the most hard-to-find feature in the editor...).

In the top right corner of the screen editor, between the "breadcrumb" trail showing what page you are on and the Flow/Screen tree, there is a symbol that looks like "< >". Clicking that brings up a tree view of the Screen elements, and it is SO much easier to work with that instead of the screen. I usually just use that now to work. All of the right-click actions that you can use on the screen (like "Swap" for If's, "Insert Widget", etc.) work in the tree view, you can drag/drop from the toolbox on the left into the tree view, etc.

It's a lot easier to work with that view for correctly nesting, positioning, etc. elements on the screen then trying to get the WYSIWYG editor to do what you want.

Hi JJ, that's what I use (the widget tree) but still I think it is better to drag and drop the elements in the pane more or less like you to in Adobe photoshop.

Hi,

And you can use CTRL+W as a shortcut to show/hide the Widget Tree
