Zoom Display Anomoly

Working on an image this evening and needed to do some pixel level editing, and noticed two issues, they may be just on my system, but if someone else would check them out.


First, going to the navigator panel and select the zoom percentage, then using the up arrow to increase the zoom factor - the percentage value increases but the zoom does not work - for example my image is zoomed to 100% in the edit window, highlight the percentage zoom, increase the zoom amount using the up arrow to say 170% - but the image stays at 100%


Second, once you zoom to say 500% instead of seeing a highly pixelated image I see the suit material - like we saw before but cannot remember the bug that was being discussed. This maybe a driver issue - but just upgraded to the latest driver for the Intel 40000. Update at a zoom factor of 495% I see a pixelated image - at 520% and greater I see the suit fabric - yes sometimes for portrait retouching I do work at 500% ort higher


Here is the fabric at 520% zoom factor

    For the navigator, does it work if you push the enter key after you use the arrow keys?

    Also with the navigator you can highlight the zoom value use the arrow keys and before you press enter hold the shift key so the values stay highlighted.

    Then you can enter another value without having to highlight the zoom percent.


    The second one it looks like your seeing the pixel grid: View>Show>Pixel Grid


    Or it might be the regular grid: View>Show>Grid

    Instead of the navigator have you tried the scrubby zoom that is in Move Tool options on the tool options bar?


    Or the Animated Zoom under Edit>Preferences>General?
