I’m sure that some of you have poked around all of your System Preferences, including the Universal Access pane, but you’d be amazed at how many Mac users are unaware of “Digital Zoom”.
Since the early days of OS X, Digital Zoom has been a “hidden” feature, nestled in the Universal Access System Preference pane. Digital Zoom zooms in on your mouse pointer to give you a close look, with minor distortion at any object. This can be very helpful in such instances as fine print and reading words from very small pictures (concept art, illustrations, etc).
To active Digital Zoom, hit command-option-* . To zoom in, use command-option-+ and command-option– to zoom out. To return your screen to its original state and turn off Digital Zoom, hit command-option-* again.
Well, I hope you have enjoyed this quick tip and have fun zooming!
