Zoom in Animate is extremely limited. Often I need to zoom just to a more convenient view than the shortcuts let me. I know I can set it manually in the drop down Zoom window, but this is counterproductive - I would like to have a shortcut, that zooms in increments of 25%, or at least to create several custom zoom presets, like 75%, 125% etc.
Is there any script I can use to make this happen?
Probably not exactly what you're wanting, but you can also use Ctrl/Cmd + mouse wheel to scroll in and out, and there's the Ctrl/Cmd + 3 shortcut to make whatever you're currently editing fill the screen.
Thank you - this is helpful, I forgot about this possibility - I have added this function to my Cintiq's touch strip combined with the CMND assigned to a Wacom stylus button. The only problem with it is if I reassign the stylus button, I cannot easily use it while working on a Cintiq.
You can do this creating a script for zooming in and a script for zooming out and assigning shortcuts to them.
1 - Download the scripts:
fl.getDocumentDOM().zoomFactor += 0.25;
fl.getDocumentDOM().zoomFactor -= 0.25;
If you want different zoom factors, open the scripts with Animate CC or any text editor and change 0.25 to another factor.
2- Copy the scripts to the following folder:
Example: C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Local\Adobe\Animate CC 2018\en_US\Configuration\Commands
3 - Assing shortcuts to each script.
In my case, I've assigned:
-> Ctrl + Shift + Num + to zoom in;
-> Ctrl + Shift + Num - to zoom out;
I hope it helps.
this is great - works like a charm!
How do I add these scripts to After Effects 2020? I added to the scripts folder but can't see them any where?
Hey thanks a lot
For me, setting 0.10 under shortcuts 1 and 2 as in ToonBomm is perfect 😉
