Balsamiq Community Discussion

Mockup screen resizing suggestion


In most PC Windows, you can resize the viewable area by pressing the Ctrl key and rolling the mouse wheel. In internet explorer there is also a slider at the bottom of the window to set it to a specific size.

In Balsamiq, I can increase/decrease the viewable area but I’m limited to the roll of the wheel which either makes it just a little too small or just a little too big.

The Zoom from the View menu offers several options all of which I have used and have satisfied my needs so far but, sometimes I would like to be able to adjust the screen to MY size preference.

Could a slider be added to the screen somewhere, maybe in the lower right-hand corner like IE?



Hey Michael :slight_smile:

You are not the first to ask about better zoom precision. We have talked a little bit about adding specific (percentage based) zoom levels. I’ll add your comments to that and see if we can’t give it a little nudge.

As always, thanks for taking the time to give us suggestions, Michael!


Great Brendan,
Don’t get me wrong though, I love the “Zoom all to Fit Ctrl+0” and “All to actual Size Ctrl+1” just a little more control would be nice.
