Can't disable animated zoom in CS5

Sep 20, 2010 3:49 AM

Subject pretty much says it all. Photoshop is fully updated via the updater (12.0.1 x64).

    Is »Scrubby Zoom« checked in the Options Bar?

    Try Preferences>General and uncheck: Animated Zoom.

    I think what your seeing is the regular non gl zoom.

    If you look at the zooming while using the keyboard shortcuts,

    it's not smooth like the animated zoom is.

     

    If you go to Preferences>General and uncheck zoom with scroll wheel,

    that may turn off the zooming with your Wacom radial wheel.

    I have the same isue with CS5, and to make things even weirder, look at this:

     

    When you press Ctrl++ and Ctrl+- (plus and minus), the zoom is animated. Press Ctrl+0 (fit to screen) and it's not animated, it pops right into the size that fits.

    When you press Ctrl+Alt++ and Ctrl+Alt+- , the zoom is not animated. And press Ctrl+Alt+0 (actual pixels), the zoom is animated again...

     

    It almost looks like some key's have been turned upside down.

     

    Edit: all zoom settings are turned off, and opengl turned on (to basic).

    Definite bug.  I've got the same problem.  Basically forced to turn off the OpenGL stuff because of it even though there might be a thing or two I like.  I haaate the animated zoom.

    Forgot to reply to you. Your solution with disabling "Resize windows to fit" worked for me. After I swapped two keyboard zoom shortcuts, all the important zoom keys are now behaving like I wanted, eg. no animated zoom With only one of the four still animating, the Resize To Fit shortcut, but I rarely use that anyway. So thanx a lot, pall !!

     

    I agree, I was a happy CS2 user before I got CS5. Always fast, no stupid nonsense. The gpu should indeed be used to accelerate the workflow and performance, not make it more fancy, blergh... I had such high regards towards Adobe, but it's slowly dissipating with their latest products, pity. I really don't get why almost everything in today's world has to look shiny and all spiffed up, sacrificing usability...

    Sorry for reviving an old thread, yet again...

    but for posterity sake (read: the next time I re-install Photoshop and have to go looking for this solution)...

    here's the correct answer:

     

    If you want to reverse the key commands easily, simply check "ON" the general preference "Zoom Resizes Windows"...

    don't ask me the how's and why's of it... but it works.

     

    Also, in the link above there's a comment on that page that was interesting:

     

    Using "CTRL+Spacebar" and "ALT+Spacebar" temporarily switches to the Zoom +/- tool...

    which is actually more efficient than using the key commands (since your right hand is likely on the mouse already, and you need to press CTRL with your left hand anyway).

     

    I like it, smarter... unfortunately the trick now;

    is breaking my habit of using "CTRL++/-" for zooming.

     

    Anyway, there's some answers.
