Please center the zoom (Ctrl+Scroll) where the mouse is and not in the center.

When we zoom in the prototyper window, the zoom is centered with the center of the canvas. It should be better to zoom (in or out) where the mouse is. (like Photoshop)


(Its a detail, but small details make big differences.)

Thanks for the suggestion, but we like to compare ourselves more with Omnigraffle or Powerpoint for that kind of interactions. In the case of this kind of tools it's better to zoom on the widget that is selected instead of the place where you have the mouse pointer.

Ok, i didn't know that the zoom was on the selected widget, i was always zooming without selecting a widget.


Good :-)

In my experience, it's not zooming to the selected widget, it's zooming to the top-left corner of the prototype, which is doubly annoying because horizontal scrolling with Justinmind is not good.

I agree with this. It is typical for graphical editors, and is beyond annoying while using, that this is not default.

This was changed a long time ago. Now the zoom is centered to the section of screen that you're seeing at that moment.

Hello Victor, thank you for the answer. Every graphical editor I use, zooms where the mouse is. That's whats annoying with JIM, that it zooms into center, not where I want to go... :(

Makes perfect sense. We'll add it to our product's backlog for future updates. Thanks!

Hi Victor, I just started trying Justinmind and noticed this right away. I agree that it is ideal to have the zoom centered around where the mouse is placed, it is very frustrating that it zooms to the center and the area around the widget which I am looking at / working on jumps off the page.

As a comparison to other applications Axure, Photoshop, Affinity Photo & Designer all zoom centered around the mouse.
