Hot Key Dynamic Zoom?

Recommended Posts

Is there anyway I can hot key the ability to toggle the zoom tool to "ctrl+space" like it is in photoshop? Same type of hotkey setup as just hitting the space bar to toggle the view tool.


Z activates the tool permanently and it dynamically zooms in. I just want to be able to hotkey the toggle.

You didn't say PC or Mac.


On a PC, press Spacebar, then Ctrl and you can drag left or right.


Press Spacebar, then Ctrl and Alt and you can drag a marquee. The window will zoom to that.


Ctrl + 0 for full screen.


It is similar on a Mac, I think.



Windows PCs. Photo and Designer, latest non-beta versions.

In the Affinity apps, Ctrl on Windows is Cmd () on a Mac. The only exception I’m aware of is when clearing your user data, for which Ctrl is used on both platforms.

The behavior also depends on if Use "scrubby" zoom is enabled in Tool preferences.
