Hello!

I've updated Illustrator to 23.0.6 and discovered that Alt+Scroll Mouse Wheel shortcut to zoom in\out is no longer working. Now it scrolls left\right

After few minutes of frustration i've discovered that now i need to press Ctrl+Alt+Scroll for it to zoom.

That's kinda not convenient, taking into account that in latest Photoshop Alt+Scroll works fine.

 

Please, Help to fix it!

Hm, yes, it was actually me. I have X Mouse Button Control app installed. Although it wasn't set up to change any of mouse scroll behaviour, after I disabled it Alt+Scroll started to work fine.So in the end my solution is to add another profile for Illustrator.exe in X Mouse Button Control and to check "Disable Scroll Window Under Cursor" checkbox in the Options tab.

Hi. Just FYI: I have the same Ai version in Mac and the Option+Scroll Mouse Wheel shortcut is working fine. Maybe any else can check it in Windows.

Hello!!

 

I have kinda the same issue here, but slightly different.

I used to zoom with my tablet by holding down SPACEBAR+ALT, and scrolling the pen down or up in the tablet.

But now (all of a sudden, maybe for a new update i didnt see) when i hold those keys, the cursor change to de zoom out icon, and when i click with the pen it does, exactrly that, zoom out... and nothing happen when i scroll up or down.

 

HAve any idea hoy to solve it? Did this happen to someone??

 

Thank you!

Kinda the same for me, but i dont even get the click zoom )= I use photoshop for the vast majority, so its been a while since i used illustrator. But i also use alt+space+drag to zoom, and while it still works in psd, it doesnt do anything in Ai. Very frustrating.
