    Painter X - working with two levels of zoom possible *solved*

    Hi, is it possible to have two windows open for the same drawing - one at say 50% zoom and the other at 200% zoom? That way I can work on the details of the caricature (in the 200% window) while maintaining likeness (by carefully watching the 50% window).

    An example of a program that does this is graphics gale.

    Is it possible for Painter X?

    No, sadly.
    You can do it in photoshop, but not in painter

    No exactly no. But Jinny Brown has suggested a workaround here that may help you, or at least maybe better than nothing.

    Hey thanks fes. I've had a quick play around with it and it seems that method works great!

    Though in OS-X, the shortcut for switching windows is 'command' + '~' not 'command'+'tab'.

    Case closed.
