Hey peoples!

I noticed in Photoshop, the pinch-zoom ability on a trackpad works great to zoom into files open on Photoshop.

How do you turn that feature on in Illustrator?

You program your time machine for the year 2018, when AI CS 8 will finally support it. No deal ATM.

That's sad. That means that Adobe will really be behind the curve, with all these new touchscreen tablets coming out.

Illustrator has been a staple of my artwork, but you can't beat drawing on screen...

I guess Apple beat them to it and unlike PS, AI is probably too unimportant to justify cramming in such last minute features.... Well, one can always hope for the future...

Humorously, in 2018, that is not a thing.

Hey Illustrator team,

I would love to have the pinch to zoom feature added to illustrator and wanted to refresh the idea. Are there any plans to include this feature in the near future?

Kind regards

Florian

Hey I know this is probably common knowledge but 'option' + swiping up or down with two fingers rocks that zoom feature for now.  The pinch will be here soon Loving my trackpad

>>> Correction - Two finger pinch to zoom works on Illustrator.

Gee, I can pinch-zoom and two-finger scroll in Ai CC2014 on my Lenovo Yoga2 Pro. Maybe I have CS8 and didn't realize it.

if CS numbering had continued past CS6, CC2014 would indeed have been CS8.

That's kind of weird, because I can pinch-zoom with my Macbook in Illustrator CC2019.
