How to Exit Zoom Mode?

Recommended Posts



I could use some help exiting Zoom Mode,


I have tried undoing or selecting a different tool but it just returns to zoom mode (z) or the hand tool (h)


which I suppose lets me drag around the artboard while in Zoom Mode.


I don't want to start from scratch everytime I begin a new project and accidently or purposely use the


zoom tool.

Hello beforeAD,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)


There's a couple ways to zoom in/out in Affinity:

- You can press the alt key and use the mouse wheel to zoom in/out

- you can press space + cmd + click for zoom in and space + alt+ click to zoom out

- you can use the slider in the context toolbar on top when you have the Zoom Tool selected

- you can use the Navigator tab on the bottom left of the application interface to zoom in/out no matter the tool selected


Let me know if you still have trouble

Hey Advanced 

thanks for the help  it must have been a fluke because it only happened yesterday night,

 but I tried all your shortcuts and cheats and it seems to work right now.


keep being awesome!
