GstarCAD8 contains a library of productivity tools designed to help you extend the power of your design.

Now, we'll do a brief introduction about the innovative command: Magnifier.


Have you ever faced with the situation that you want to see some detail during drawing, then you have to zoom in/out the whole drawing and try hard to find the part you want to magnify? You must find it really takes you a lot of time. Magnifier makes it easy for designers to view details and drafts over the most complex drawing at glance. This tool helps to view a specific area of your drawing as a magnifier without performing zoom in/out on big drawings like map or survey and can be customized.


There are two ways available executing MAGNIFIER command: clicking the scroll wheel of the mouse and the shortcut key Ctrl+E, which can be customized in Settings as to your interests. You may find Settings with right click mouse of the magnifier icon at the status bar.


Then let’s see what others we can set up in the use of MAGNIFIER.
1. Magnifier Style: including Region and Window.
Region: Activating it means the spot you select from your drawing within the magnifier shape will be magnified. The cursor only can move in the magnifier shape. You can execute zoom, pan, and draw objects, etc to see the bigger and clearer details.



Window: activating it means not only the part you select, also the whole drawing will be magnified according to the magnifier factor you set. With window style, the cursor can move in and out of the magnifier shape. The operations, for example zoom or draw objects will not be restricted in the shape of magnifier.
