Zooming With The Mouse

Zoom Mode

Before using your mouse to zoom, you must first enter Zoom  Mode.  Push the fxgclip0224 button on the graph tool's toolbar.


Once in Zoom mode you can use the mouse to Zoom into and out from functions.



Click Zooming

If you click the left mouse button somewhere on the plane, the graph tool will zoom in to the point you click on.  This allows you to quickly and easily zoom in on points of interest.


If you right click, the graph tool will zoom out.



Rectangle Zooming

If you sweep out a rectangle while holding down the left mouse button, the graph tool will zoom into the rectangle you have defined.








Undo Zoom

Undo remembers zoom events so you can undo any zoom by choosing Undo from the Edit menu or by typing Ctrl+Z
