The Pixelmator Pro Zoom tool lets you zoom in and out of the image using the zoom slider, zoom modes, and more.

Use the Zoom tool

  1. Choose the Zoom tool by doing one of the following:

    • Press Z on your keyboard.
  2. Do any of the following:

    • In the Tool Options pane, drag the Zoom slider to zoom in or out of the image. You can also use the Navigator box to change the area of an image on which you’re zoomed in.
    • Click the disclosure triangle next to the current zoom to choose a default zoom percentage, or type in a custom zoom percentage into the percentage field.
    • Under Mode, select Zoom In or Zoom Out and click the area of an image that you’d like to zoom in or zoom out.
