Document layout, page operations, scroll and zoom

Written by Kate Moir

All the pages in your document are shown in the editing workspace, one above the other.

You can push pages around (scroll) by simply pressing the mouse center button (the wheel) and dragging anywhere on the page. You can also drag the scroll bars at the page edge as normal, to rapidly move through the document.

On the left side of the editing workspace you'll see page thumbnails for all the pages in your document. Simply click a page to scroll to that page. For longer documents you can scroll the page thumbnail area by using the mouse wheel, or dragging on the thumbnails.

Page thumbnails shown down the left side of my document

You can add pages to your document by clicking on Add Page icon at the top left, or to see the full range of page operations click the 3 dots... next to the page thumbnail.

For templates that have multiple page designs Add page will display the full range of page designs for this template.

You can hide and show the thumbnail panel by sliding left / right on it, or just tapping the projecting ‘drag handle’.


There’s zoom tool / magnifier icon in the lower left corner of the editor. 

When you tap the magnifier icon, or just hover the mouse over it, a zoom slider pop-up is shown that lets you interactively adjust the zoom level from 30% to 1000%. Pressing the + icon will also smoothly increase the zoom level while pressed (and will go beyond 1000%).

Toggle between the previous and current zoom levels by tapping the arrow button at the far left of the slider. And zoom to 100% by tapping the vertical blip on the slider.

For advanced users a much more direct way to zoom is to use the mouse scroll wheel in conjunction with the Shift or Ctrl key, which allows fast zoom all the way to 25,000%. This also has the advantage that it zooms into the mouse pointer location. 

You can also…

  • Drag the magnifier icon up the left edge of the screen to zoom in

  • Drag right along the bottom edge to zoom out. This zooms around the center of the screen, but you can set a zoom focus point by clicking on the magnifier and clicking on the point you want to zoom into. After this dragging the slider will zoom around that point on the page.

  • Click or tap the magnifier icon and drag across the area you want to zoom into

And using the keyboard… 

  • Z will shortcut straight to zoom

  • Ctrl+0 (zero) key will zoom to 100% view

  • Ctrl with (+) plus and (-) key to zoom in /out one step

  • On a touch based device you can use pinch-zoom gesture.
