The Zoom function allows for altering the viewpoint of the images by zooming in and out, and also provides the option of a full screen view.

The Normal Size is the default angle. Selecting this option will bring the images back to their original viewing angle.

The Full Screen options displays VivoQuant in full screen mode. To enable and disable the Full Screen mode, hit the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + F.

The Auto Zoom option is a useful function which automatically increases the viewing angle of the images if the size of VivoQuant’s window is increased. To access this option, click on the Auto Zoom thumbnail Icon on VivoQuant’s top bar.
