No zoom functionality in export menu

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

The usual shortcut keys listed in the Zoom menu should work. On Windows, Ctrl++, Ctrl+-, Ctrl+1, etc.

Unfortunately with WebP the zoom does not work. With JPG for instance the keyboard shortcuts work

I can confirm that the Export Preview Zoom does not work with the following;

  • Webp
  • EPS
  • WMF
  • SVG
  • PDF
  • PSD

Exporting to GIF, the preview took a long time, but was able to zoom in/out in the preview.

So the only formats the zoom works in the Export Preview are:

  • PNG
  • JPEG
  • GIF
  • TIFF
  • EXR
  • HDR
  • TGA

The issue "Export Preview: Some formats do not zoom with the shortcut" (REF: AFP-5615) has been fixed by the developers in internal build "".
This fix should soon be available as a customer beta and is planned for inclusion in the next customer release.
Customer beta builds are announced here and you can participate by following these instructions.
If you still experience this problem once you are using that build version (or later) please reply to this thread including @Serif Info Bot to notify us.
