The blue rectangle determines the current view in the main window. Click and drag the rectangle to adjust the current view.

Adjust the yellow control points to manipulate the pan and zoom. Alternatively, use the plus and minus icons in the toolbar to zoom incrementally, or enter a zoom level in the number box.

Use the arrow icons in the Pan and Zoom toolbar to move between document pages.

Click the camera icon in the Pan and Zoom toolbar to take a snapshot of the current view. A bitmap copy of the selection will be pasted to the clipboard, and can then be edited as detailed here.

Click and drag the loupe window to reposition it on the screen. When it is selected, four icons will appear in the center of the borders of the main window. Move the pointer onto these icons and release the mouse button to dock the Pan and Zoom window.


When the Pan and Zoom feature is in operation two options are available in the Properties Toolbar:


Exclusive Mode simplifies the process of using the Pan and Zoom feature. When Exclusive Mode is enabled, the pointer ignores all interactive elements of documents other than base content. This makes it possible to select areas without the risk of accidentally selecting undesired items. When Exclusive Mode is disabled, the pointer recognizes and interacts with all underlying elements in the standard manner.

Properties opens the Properties window to view/edit the properties for the Pan and Zoom feature. Further information on tool properties is available here.
