Moving and Zooming an Image

Using the Image Comparator
Moving and Zooming an Image
You can move the image within the Baseline and Actual panes in several ways:
Use the horizontal and vertical scroll bars. Scrolling is synchronized if you are
viewing both files.
Use the moving hand pointer. If you hold down the left mouse anywhere in the
image that is not a mask or a difference region, the mouse pointer turns into a
hand. Use it to move the image around in the window.
You can use the zooming commands to move around the image. You can zoom
in, zoom out, zoom by percentage, fit the image exactly to the window, or return to
the normal image size.
To zoom in on the image, click
View > Zoom > Zoom In
This zooms in on the image by a factor of 2. If you have a mask, OCR region, or
difference region selected when you use the Zoom command, the zooming is
centered on that region. If you do not have a region selected, the zoom is centered
on the entire image. You can use the command repeatedly to keep zooming into
the image.
To zoom out from the image, click
View > Zoom > Zoom Out
To zoom the normal display of the image by a percentage, click
View > Zoom >
Zoom Special
and the percentage.
To restore the image to its original size, click
View > Zoom > Normal Size
To fit the image to the full size of the pane, click
View > Zoom > Fit To Window
Zoom factors always retain the image's aspect ratio to ensure that text and images
appear without distortion.
Fit To Window
represents the largest zoom factor that can
display the entire image in the window while maintaining the image's aspect ratio.
