Where are the Zoom buttons?

Posted September 26, 2017 by codeforfun2017


In the flash version, there are zoom in, zoom out buttons.  I don't see this in the current version so how does one accomplish this?

Great question.  In StarLogo Nova 2.0 you click on the "edit camera" button then use your mouse or track pad to zoom in and out.  For me, on a mac with trackpad, I have a two finger drag mapped to zoom. On a PC, it might be a right click and drag.  Try it and let us know what works for you.

Once the camera is setup the way you like, don't forget to click the "Lock Camera" button to lock it in place.

In reply to ilee:

If you are using a mouse with a scroll wheel, once you are in the Edit Camera mode you can scroll to zoom the screen.  On my trackpad, I can zoom with two fingers (moving them apart or closer together).  Please let us know if you have other questions, or you can find the link to "StarLogo Nova 2.0 changes" on the News tab, in the story announcing the release of 2.0.  

Happy coding!
