    Default How to Zoom out Designer view of the UI?

    Hi,

    Google searched for an answer on this one but can't find one. How do I zoom out the Form UI view? Its fitting too big in its window right now with in the designer section of the application.

    Thank you

    There is no zoom functionality in Designer. If you have trouble working with a complex form, split it into smaller parts and design them separately.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.

    Its not complex. Just grew larger in size with every edit such that I now need to use the scroll bars to see it from end to end. Perhaps I could edit the form data instead to shrink it down?

    Thanks

    Yeah that worked. I just changed the QMainWindow width and height geometry in a text editor. Now I can edit the form without issue.

    Personally I think this is a big design usability flaw with the QT Design program if you can't zoom in and out to see what your doing.

    Thanks.
