How to zoom, navigate and do more when previewing on mobile devices? 

Here goes how:
  • Pinch-to-Zoom: Utilize a two-finger gesture to effortlessly zoom in or out on the design. The zoom level can be adjusted within a range of 10% to 400%. As you zoom in, the screen expands or contracts from the center.

  • Single-Finger Pan: When the design exceeds the screen's dimensions, employ a single-finger gesture to navigate and explore different sections of the design.

  • Double-Click: Double-clicking swiftly restores the default state of the design, helping to instantly reset the zoom level and position to its original settings.

These gestures empower you to seamlessly zoom in, pan, and reset the design while previewing it on your mobile device.
