➜ Hold down the CAPS LOCK and SHIFT keys and roll the mouse wheel forward to zoom in and backward to zoom out.

To zoom in and out using the Voice Assistant:

1.) Activate the Voice Assistant by saying the wake word "Zoomy" or pressing the Voice Assistant Hotkey: CAPS LOCK + ALT + SPACEBAR. A short audible notification will confirm that the assistant is active. A visual indicator will also appear on the screen.

2.) With the Voice Assistant activated, say one of the following commands to zoom in or zoom out:

"Zoom in" or "Zoom out"

"Bigger" or "Smaller"

"Increase zoom level" or "Decrease zoom level"

"Increase magnification" or "Decrease magnification"

You can also zoom directly to any zoom level by saying "Zoom" and the desired zoom level. For example, say "Zoom, 4".

These features are also available in Fusion.
