How Do I Zoom in a Specific Area in Figma?

In Figma, zooming in a specific area is an easy process. It allows designers to focus in on details and refine their designs. This feature can be used to zoom in on a particular part of a design, or to zoom out for a better overview of the whole project.

Zooming in Figma can be done by either using the zoom slider at the top of the screen, or by using keyboard shortcuts. To use the zoom slider, simply click and drag it to the desired magnification level. Alternatively, you can press ‘Cmd+’ (or ‘Ctrl+’ on Windows) to zoom in and ‘Cmd-’ (or ‘Ctrl-’ on Windows) to zoom out.

It is also possible to zoom into a specific area within your design project. To do this, select the region you want to focus on by clicking and dragging your mouse over it. Then press ‘Cmd+’ (or ‘Ctrl+’ on Windows) once, and Figma will automatically adjust the view so that your selection is centred in the middle of the screen with maximum magnification applied.

If you need more granular control over how much you are zooming into an area, you can do this too! Press down and hold on ‘Cmd+’ (or ‘Ctrl+’ on Windows) until you reach your desired magnification level. Once released, Figma will remain focused at that level until manually changed again with either the zoom slider or keyboard shortcuts.

Figma makes it easy for designers to quickly adjust their view of a design project while they work – whether they need a broader overview or need to focus in on details! With its simple zooming tools, designers can quickly adjust their view so they can get more done without compromising accuracy or quality.


By using either the zoom slider or keyboard shortcuts in Figma, designers can easily zoom into specific areas of their projects with greater control over their magnification levels. This makes it easier for them to refine their designs with greater accuracy and efficiency.
