The Zoom control

Look in the lower-right corner if you need to zoom.

After you insert something, you may need a closer look at its details. So you'll definitely want to know where you zoom.

Look in the lower-right corner. Drag the slider to the right to zoom in, and drag it to the left to zoom out.


  • Clicking the percent number to the left of the slider will open the Zoom dialog box, where you can specify a zoom percentage.
  • If your mouse has a wheel, you can hold down the CTRL key and turn the wheel forward to zoom in, backward to zoom out.
  • You can also find Zoom commands on the View tab.
