Zooming In and Out on a Worksheet
In the lower-right corner of the Excel window, a new Zoom slider allows you to zoom from 400% to 10% with lightning speed. You simply drag the slider to the right to zoom in and to the left to zoom out. The Zoom Out and Zoom In buttons on either end of the slider allow you to adjust the zoom in 10% increments.
Figure 3.10 shows the zoom control set to the maximum zoom of 400%.
Figure 3.10 You can use the Zoom slider or the Zoom Out and Zoom In buttons to change the zoom.
At the opposite end of the zoom spectrum, the 10% view shows an overview of 158 printed pages of the worksheet. As shown in Figure 3.11, you cannot make out any numbers at a 10% zoom. However, in the 40%–60% zoom range, you can see 3 to 10 pages and actually make out the numbers in the cells.
Figure 3.11 At 10% zoom, you can see 150+ pages at once.
