Note:

The user interface has been simplified in Dreamweaver CC and later. As a result, you may not find some of the options described in this article in Dreamweaver CC and later. For more information, see this article.

Dreamweaver lets you increase the magnification (zoom in) in the Document window so that you can check the pixel accuracy of graphics, select small items more easily, design pages with small text, design large pages, and so on.

Note:

The zooming tools are only available in Design view.

Zoom in or out on a page

  1. Click the Zoom tool (the magnifying glass icon) in the lower-right corner of the Document window.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Click the spot on the page you want to magnify until you’ve achieved the desired magnification.

    You can also zoom in without using the Zoom tool by pressing Control+= (Windows) or Command+= (Macintosh).
