    Hey,

    I was just wondering if there were different ways to zoom? I want to zoom in on my screen but I don't want to have the mouse being followed the whole time, someone told me Cmd + Scroll forward/back will work, but it doesn't for me. I'm on Leopard 10.5.6

    Control+Scroll.

    Text can be zoomed in Safari, and you can increase the zoom in specific applications.

    For system-wide, non-mouse-following zoom, make your resolution smaller.

    That's because it's control+scroll.

     -> System Preferences -> Universal Access -> Zoom -> Options.

    Damn, beat me to it. Anyway, the zoom options allow you to configure how the zoomed window reacts to your mouse cursor.

    I know about control scroll, which is why I said I don't want to follow the mouse, I don't want it system wide, like if I just want to zoom into a corner of the screen and then zoom out, but I don't want the mouse to be followed

    Thanks, sorry I didn't understand that, I hope it didn't come off as being rude.
