Zoom in / zoom out on images

By default when you click the Add Comment button, the Image Annotation editor displays the image at 100% zoom. Large images may not be completely visible in the editor, so scroll bars appear on the right and bottom sides of the editor. The image annotation editor allows you to zoom in and zoom out on images allowing you to focus on specific details within the image, or to view the entire large image within the editor.

  2. In the Image Annotation editor window, click the  Zoom Out button to make the image smaller within the editor.

    Icon

    When you click the Zoom In and Zoom Out buttons, the percentage goes up or down by 10%. This does not change the size of the image, only allows you to zoom in or zoom out on the image.

    You may manually change the zoom to a specific percentage by typing in the Canvas Zoom field and hitting the Enter key on the keyboard.

    You may zoom in on an image to as much as 500%, and you may zoom out on an image to as little as 10%.

  3. When you zoom in or out on images that include shapes and text, the shapes and text fields retain their proportion to the image size.
  4. When you edit a text field on an image that is zoomed out, the text field enlarges so you may edit the text. The image remains zoomed out. When you click away from the text field, the text field returns to the smaller zoomed out size.
