How Do I Zoom in With Mouse and Figma?

Using the zoom function in Figma can be a great way to take a closer look at your design. It allows you to see the details of your design that may not be visible from far away.

Zoom can also be used to quickly navigate around a large document, making it easier to find specific elements. Fortunately, Figma makes it easy to zoom in and out with the mouse and other tools.

Using the Mouse Wheel

The easiest way to zoom in and out of your Figma designs is by using the mouse wheel. Click anywhere on the canvas and scroll up or down with your mouse wheel to zoom in or out respectively. You can also press Ctrl + Mouse Wheel on Windows or Command + Mouse Wheel on Macs for finer control over zooming.

Using Keyboard Shortcuts

If you don’t have access to a mouse, you can still use keyboard shortcuts for controlling zoom in Figma. Pressing Ctrl + + (Windows) or Command + + (Macs) will zoom into your design, while pressing Ctrl + – (Windows) or Command + – (Macs) will zoom out.

Using Zoom Toolbar

You can also use the Zoom Toolbar located at the top right of your screen when working with Figma designs. There are several options available such as “Fit to Screen”, “Fit Selection” and “Actual Size”. You can also manually enter a specific percentage value if needed.


Zooming in and out of designs in Figma is an essential part of any project workflow. With mouse, keyboard shortcuts and the Zoom Toolbar all available as methods for controlling zoom, you can easily adjust your view of any design with ease.
