Zooming challenges

Aug 16, 2011 at 9:36 PM


I am trying to zoom to a preset region, but I cann't find a function for it.

I found a workaround, I make a pointshape file with points at the centers of areas of intrest. I then 'ZoomToShape' and then 'Zoomout' 10000 (ten thousand) percent.

wouldn't it be easier to add a 'ZoomWindow" function with 2 coordinates

just a suggestion, if anyone has a better idea please send it


Kind regards

You can set the map extents which will do what your interested in.  Focusing on a preset region would need 2 points (top left, and bottom right).  Hope this helps.
