Parent page: CAMtastic Commands

The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to move the design away from you, relative to the cursor position, in the current document.


This command can be accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by:

  • Choosing the View » Zoom Out command from the main menus.
  • Clicking the  button, on the CAMtastic Standard toolbar.
  • Using the PgDn keyboard shortcut.
  • Right-clicking within the workspace and choosing the Zoom Out command from the context menu.


Launch the command to zoom out from a particular section of the document. Use the command repeatedly to zoom out to a greater extent.


  1. As this command is relative to the cursor position, it is a good idea to position the cursor in the desired location, prior to launching the command, and to use the keyboard shortcut.
  2. This command can be used, through its respective keyboard shortcut, even while another process is running, for example during placement mode.
  3. You can also zoom in by pressing Ctrl whilst rolling the mouse wheel downwards.
