    How to switch off zoom/move?

    wdburgdorf Level 1

      Lately it sometimes happens that I switch on zoom/move, and then don't know how to switch it off again/switch to another tool. Just now, diving me nuts, can do nothing but move and zoom in and out. What's the trick?

      Thanks!

          The only mouse cursor in Lightroom is the zoom cursor. When you click on an image it will zoom to whatever magnification you have chosen. Then the cursor will switch to a hand, indicating that you can move that image around to inspect different parts of it. Just clicking on the image will cause Latin to zoom back to the full view. What do you want to happen differently?

            When I click on a tool, such as white balance picker, I want LR to switch to that tool. Usually it does that, but sometimes not, so I see no way to pick white balance. For example. And there are several other mouse cursors in Lightroom.

              There are no alternative cursors in Lightroom. Are you aware that, in the develop module, you can activate the white balance tool by pressing the W key? There are shortcuts for other tools as well.

              Q = Spot removal

              M = Gradient tool

              R  = Crop tool

              Shift + M = Radial filter

              K = Adjustment brush

                Sorry, I don't understand why you are saying that there are no alternative cursors in Lightroom. There obviously are, the colour picker, the various brushes, and so on.

                 

                I don't know many shortcut keys, I'm using so many programs, it is totally impossible to remember all keys, so if it's easy to click to select, then that's what I do. And normally that works. Only *sometimes* in LR it doesn't. I can't get out of zoom mode and cannot switch to another tool. Hence my question. Maybe it's just a bug in my copy and you are lucky to not have that bug ...
