This is the first time I've posted on these forums. I'm not usually the kind of guy that even bothers to get to this stage but I have found no other solution. I'm using indesign cs6, and whenever i alt-zoom, the cursor becomes all buggy and jumpy until i click a random spot in my document. i am CONSTANTLY zooming in and out for the sort of work that i am doing, so it is super frustrating. it has gotten worse as the document gets bigger, so that may have something to do with it, however I am running it on a fairly powerful computer. I have tried using a different mouse to no avail, so i know it inst my mouse or its software that is the problem (using a corsair m65 vengeance). My PC is running an asus motherboard with i7 3770k processor, nvidia gtx660 graphics, 8gb of ram and windows/indesign installed on an SSD. Any help would be extremely appreciated
May I suggest a better technique? I find Alt Mousewheeling clumsy:
If an object is selected, or Type tool is inserted into text, it is simple to Ctrl + and Ctrl - to zoom in and out.
Done looking close and want to come out and see the whole page? Ctrl 0 for the page and Ctrl Alt 0 for the whole spread. Memorize and habituate to that.
Best technique of all: want to zoom into a small place on the page all at one go? Hold down Ctrl plus Spacebar AND drag a small marquee over the tiny bit you want to see up close. Release the drag, then let go the Ctrl and Spacebar and you are done.
