Is there any way that can get the current zoom value in InDesign?




Thanks a lot.

    You could peek at the widget indicated in your screen shot, at least when that MDI (?) frame is showing.


    The window title at kLayoutPresentationBoss, IID_IDOCUMENTPRESENTATION also reflects the value.


    Probably best would be the kLayoutWidgetBoss, with its IID_IPANORAMA, GetXScaleFactor() - and GetYScaleFactor()!!!

    I just try to imagine how a document would look if these differ from each other ;-) and, even better, how to achieve that from the UI.


    Btw, one notification is on kDocWorkspaceBoss, protocol IID_IWINDOW, command kUpdateDocumentUIStateCmdBoss.

    Another one: there is a kDocWindowTitleModifyService ...


    Edit: of course I should again mention IID_IPANORAMA, observable from kLayoutWidgetBoss subject.
