What is a Canvas Zoom and Focus Control?

tags: canvas zoom and focus

In the past, we were limited to single canvas size. This meant that we were unable to zoom in and out of the canvas and focus on a particular section of it.

With the introduction of Zoom and Focus Control in Drawtify, you can now easily zoom in and out of your canvas as well as focus on any selection you want. This is great for designers who are working with large canvas or need to work with specific objects of their design.

Zooming on a canvas is one of the most common tasks for artists, especially when they are drawing or painting. The zoom tool is located on the right-bottom side of the screen. To use it, you have to click and choose which size you want.

You can zoom in by Ctrl/Cmd + “=” or zoom out by Ctrl/Cmd + “-“. Or you can press and hold Ctrl/Cmd key, then scroll your mouse wheel to zoom in or zoom out your canvas easily and quickly.

How to Focus on an area of the Canvas

It is important to focus on an area of the canvas when you are working with a large painting.

The idea is to simplify and eliminate everything that does not belong in that specific area. This will help you to create a clear focal point for your painting and make it more interesting.

In Drawtify, you can zoom selected objects by Ctrl/Cmd + 2 or center selection by Ctrl/Cmd + 3. If you have a trackpad, you can use 2 fingers to move and zoom canvas easily, or pan canvas by holding the Space bar and using mouse drag.
