So I like the new zoom in Indesign, been using it with a prerelease beta where it has worked flawlessly. Not sure what the name of it is, but it works like it does in illustrator and photoshop (latest releases). You click with the zoom, hold and drag forward or back and it zooms in and out. Very fluid and works well for me in how I work. Anyways, I am finding in Indesign it seems to stop working every now and then, I cannot find a consistent reason to make it stop working. I have a business card I am setting up and trying to zoom in, but only getting the zoom box. Without closing Indesign, I open a new document and can now zoom in and out as described above, the proper way.
Is this something trashing the preference file help, or what is going on here? Is there an option somewhere to turn off and on this style of zoom? This is on a Mac running OS 10.11.5
figured out the problem... well not really a problem. When switching between CPU and GPU preview, it changes the way the zoom works. So if I have it set to preview on CPU, it does the zoom box, if I have it set to preview on GPU it is the fluid zoom in and out.
