Report Preview


The preview can be controlled by either using a mouse, or using the keyboard.  The keyboard functions supported by the preview are as follows: 


Zoom/Normal      <Space>


Pressing the SpaceKey toggles the display between Normal and Zoomed mode.  The cursor will appear as a magnifying glass with a "minus sign" when the image is in Zoomed mode, or with a "plus sign" when the image is in "normal" mode.  If using a mouse, placing the cursor over the part of the page to be zoomed in on, then clicking the Left mouse button will cause the preview to zoom in on that part of the page.

Scrolling of the preview can be accomplished by using the "cursor" keys to shift the display Up,Down, Left, and Right.
