View Menu

The View menu controls the appearance of the document window. A checkmark in the menu lets you know which view you're in:

  • Zoom In. Zooms in on the document in 50% increments. For example, if you're looking at a document at normal size (100%), selecting this option zooms to 150%; selecting it again zooms to 200%.

  • Magnification. Lets you choose from a list of magnification levels from the absurdly small and illegible 6% all the way to a ridiculously large, land-of-the-giant-pixels 6400%.

  • Fit Selection, Fit All, Fit Width. Additional magnification options that either zoom in or zoom out depending of the size of the document or selected element.

  • Code. Displays the file's source code.

  • Design. Displays the file's visual design.

  • Code and Design. Splits the document window into two panes: source code on top, visual design at the bottom. You can adjust how much of each pane is visible by dragging the center divider up or down.

  • Switch Views. Switches between the Code and Design views.

  • Refresh Design View. Updates the Design view to reflect changes you've made directly to the source code in either Code view or split (Code and Design) view.

  • Noscript Content ...
