authorware magnifier command

I was updating an Authorware project recently and became frustrated by the inability to zoom in on areas of the presentation window. After struggling to find a comfortable work flow with a couple of the various magnifier applications for windows I remembered an experimental Authorware command that I’d built some time ago. Upon digging it out and making a small update to make it a bit more useable I can report that it seems to meet the need adequately.

authorware magnifier command

I’ve posted the magnifier command for Authorware here for download. It supports Authorware 7.01+ , integrates into the IDE somewhat like a palette and has a couple of handy features:
- Double click the palette’s titlebar area to toggle magnification on/off.
-When the ‘Tools’ palette is available double click the ‘Magnify’ palette’s display region to dock next to the ‘Tools’ palette.

To install extract the zip to the Authorware Commands directory. Launch the command from the Authorware Commands menu.

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many options out there
    that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Bless you!

    Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to generate a superb article… but what can I say… I hesitate a lot
    and don’t seem to get anything done.
