Is there a way to zoom to selection?


In other words if I select an object, the ability to zoom in so that object fills the window. I see that in the layers palette if you double click on the item it fills the window and that's great but I'd like that ability from either a key shortcut or a right click menu paradigm. OR- sort of related to this would be if the layers palette highlighted each currently selected object automatically then a quick double click in the layers palette would work...  open for suggestions on this one.


I have this ability currently in illustrator (via a plugin) and it is a great time saver and workflow enhancer for sure.

Not sure why we haven't added zoom to selection in the view menu, I will ask Matt tomorrow. 


When you select an object, the layer panel should already show the selected object. You can also right-click on an object and choose 'Find in Layer Page'


Many thanks,

Double click on a layer:


A double click on a layer does not consistently do a zoom to the layers content to me.


Ca. 50% of clicks it does not do anything.

And it gets less % in documents where "draw" and "pixel personas" are mixed.
