Zoom Jumping Around

In Photoshop, if I click in say, the upper left hand corner with the zoom tool, the image will zoom in as if its center were in the upper left hand corner of the screen.  If I prefer to not use Scrubby zoom and I need to click a second time, I do not need to move my zoom cursor, I can just click again right where I left off.

 

In ILLUSTRATOR though, if I click with the Zoom in the upper left hand corner, the canvas will JUMP so that where I clicked is now ... in the center of the screen.  Now, if I have to click Zoom again, I have to move my cursor over to the center and click again.   And if I'm off-center when clicking, the canvas jumps again.  And again.  And again.

 

How do I get the Illustrator zoom to behave like that other Adobe product called Photoshop?

 

Toggling Zoom to Selection doesn't offer a behavior that fixes this for me.

 

Thanks,

 

Marc

Thank you, Dan.  In the end I turned on Scrubby Zoom in both Photoshop and Illustrator since that zoom at least behaves the way I expect it to and is common between both applications.  I have a lot of muscle memory to get past, but perhaps over time I'll get used to it. Thanks again, Marc

Other than using Scrubby Zoom (which you said you don't prefer), I don't know of a way to make them work the same.

Until Scrubby Zoom was implemented across PS, ID, and AI I resisted it because it was hard to change my muscle memory. Once they did, I started getting used to it and have grown to like it. So it's good to give it a chance. In the end I now prefer it as I have more control over the final zoom amount.
