For the god sake, can i just re-asign the zoom in Indesign ? Because every normal people and software in the world uses ctrl+scroll instead of alt+scroll for dynamic zoom. Thanks.

Hi Lucas,

I assume you are on Windows and not on MacOS.

In the Adobe world at least InDesign, Illustrator and PhotoShop are using Alt + Scroll for zooming with the mouse wheel. On Windows and on MacOS. Acrobat Pro and Adobe Reader are different with Ctrl + Scroll on Windows 10.

 

FWIW: You can zoom in and out with the Ctrl key in InDesign on Windows.

Just add the + or the - key to zoom in or out in certain steps.

There is no such a feature. You can do this - https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/84926/how-do-i-zoom-with-ctrl-instead-of-alt-on-wi... - only on your own risk.

Remember, never say you can't do something in InDesign, it's always just a question of finding the right workaround to get the job done. © David Blatner
