Tip #1090: An Even FASTER Way to Zoom
Press “Z” then drag in the timeline to zoom into an area.
This tip was suggested by Warren Nelson.
An even faster way to zoom into the timeline is to press the letter “Z” while dragging the mouse over the area you want to zoom into.
As soon as you let go of the mouse, the area you selected now fills the timeline.
NOTE: The benefit to this approach is that you can quickly move precisely into the area you want to see, without dragging window controls around.
To reset the timeline so the entire edit fits into the visible timeline, type Shift + Z.
