Hi, I was wondering if there was a way to zoom up on the print layout in the Print Module? I am trying to create custom print templates and would like to be able to zoom in to see the layout in more detail. I know the other modules have the ability to zoom in. But I have not found anything in the print module.

Looking at the forums, this idea has been asked for since 2007.

Hey there,

I am searching for a way to zoom in Print Module for a long time now and after talking with someone from the Adobe support, I now know that I am not only unable to find it but that it's impossible ;)

It would be perfect if you could add this feature in LR4. I think there are many people looking for it :)

I think it would really make it easier to work very precise and with much more quality, so thumbs up!

We absolutely need Zoom. I make templates for the print module. Huge problem. The bigger the doc the less I can SEE what I am doing and line up the photo boxes for collages. I have to export over and over and over to make sure things are lined up. And the Grid is no help. It is not precise enough.

I purchased Light Room 4 because I was told by Apple support that it had this feature. Is there software that will do this, zoom and print

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled LIGHTROOM: Please can we have a zoom tool in the print module for export..

Please could we have a zoom in the print module when creating a file for external print. Please include a zoom tool in the print module for saving to file.The examination of fine detail in image placement means that a jpeg has to be saved, exported and then examined in preview, then return to the print module to correct. Very time consuming.

A possibility to zoom and to add "sticky" guide lines for a precise alignment of items in the printing module would be a great improvement.

yes, can confirm that workaround to crop images upfront is cumbersome.
