They’ve gone and moved it…

If you’ve been using Expression Interactive Designer over the last 12 months and have recently upgraded to the Expression Blend Beta 1 you may be wondering where the work space zoom control has moved to.

If you’ve not seen this, it’s great ūüôā and the answer for anyone with a high DPI screen… Blend allows you to zoom the work space to make the panals and text perfect for any size or dpi of screen.

You can find the control here, under options:

Once you’ve chosen options you’ll be presented with the following window:

Workspace zoom allows you to alter the scale of the UI. This is fantastic and everytime I plug my machine into a 23in or larger monitor the speed that I can make the UI usable still makes me smile. No more squinting at tiny fonts!

Just in case you’re wondering the theme option allows you to change from the default dark UI, though why you’d ever want to? Using Blend again for the first time after Christmas just felt so right, it was like saying hello to an old friend. Hmm… ok… so maybe I’m sad…
