To view the entire Stage on the screen in Adobe Flash Professional, or to view a particular area of your drawing at high magnification, you can change the magnification level. The maximum magnification depends on the resolution of your monitor and the document size. The minimum value for zooming out on the Stage is 8%; the maximum value for zooming in is 2000%.
If you want to zoom in on an element, select the Zoom tool in the Tools panel and then click the element. To switch the Zoom tool between zooming in or out, use the Enlarge or Reduce modifiers (in the options area of the Tools panel when the Zoom tool is selected) or Alt-click (Windows) or Option-click (Mac OS).
You can zoom in so that a specific area of your drawing fills the window by dragging a rectangular selection on the Stage with the Zoom tool.
To access the Zoom tool, select it in the Tools panel. Here's what you can do with it:
To learn more about working with the Zoom tool, see the section titled Using the Stage and the Tools panel in the Flash documentation.
