Page Zoom

When it comes to "wow" factor, Page Zoom is right up there with Quick Tabs.. its brilliant.

Page Zoom can be used not only to increase the size text and GRAPHICS on a Web page, it can also be used to increase or decrease the print size of pages (or parts thereof).

The keyboard shortcuts to manipulate Zoom settings are:

Ctrl + (zoom in)
Ctrl - (zoom out)
Ctrl 0 (set to 100%)

If you have a Wheel Mouse, hold down the ctrl key then spin up to zoom in, spin down to zoom out.

Zoom selection can also be controlled by the the Zoom menu on the status bar.

Note: Zoom is not available on the Quick Tabs page.

User settings that affect zoom behaviour are:

Advanced Tab
