About zooming pages

You can enlarge or reduce a page to any size allowed – within the range of the minimum and maximum zoom levels. When you zoom-in to a size larger than the window, you can use the Hand tool to move the page.

Note Use the Hand tool at the top of the Panel bar to move around the page. Define its behavior in File > Options > General > Miscellaneous.
