When i use Illustrator CS6 i am able to zoom in and out smothly by pressing my option key on my Mac and then scroll with my mouse. It wont let me do that in Illustrator CC, why not? Also i should not that this zoom does not use the zoom tool on the left hand tool bar.


Thank you for any help.

    Did Option+mouse scroll ever zoom smoothly? (Wish it did.)

    For me it zooms in hops: 50, 66.67, 100, 150, 200 etc. same as when you click with the zoom tool.


    You can of course enter exact zoom %s at the bottom left of the Illie window but that’s not smooth either.
