Does your canvas look different than what you see in our screenshots? Switch to the new experience by clicking the “twinkle toggle” in the top right of the page.

Inside of a mural, you have two main navigation settings to choose from: trackpad mode and mouse mode. Trackpad mode is best if you’re using a laptop with a trackpad built in. And—you guessed it—mouse mode is best if you’re using a mouse external to your computer.

Trackpad mode

Trackpad is best if you’re using a laptop with a trackpad built in. Mural helps speed up your movements around the canvas by adding a few multi-finger gestures to your arsenal.

With trackpad mode, you can pinch with two fingers to zoom. You can also move two fingers around the trackpad to move around the canvas.

Another cool hack is the option of turning your cursor into a magnifying glass. Simply hold the X key on your keyboard and then hover over objects on your canvas with your cursor. As you hover over them, each object will be magnified for quick viewing.

To enable trackpad mode:

  1. In your mural, click the Navigation settings icon in the bottom right corner.

  2. Select Trackpad mode.

  3. Click the X to close navigation settings.

Now, you’re all set to use your trackpad to get around your canvas.


Mouse mode

If you’re using a mouse, your best bet is to turn on mouse mode.

With mouse mode, you can take advantage of your mouse’s scrolling functionality to zoom in and out of the canvas. You can also quickly move around the canvas by clicking in an open space of the canvas and dragging your mouse.

Just like in trackpad mode, you can turn your cursor into a magnifying glass by holding the X key on your keyboard. Then, hover over objects on your canvas to magnify them. This helps you see things clearly even when you’re at a distance.

To enable mouse mode:

  1. In your mural, click the Navigation settings icon in the bottom right corner.

  2. Select Mouse mode.

  3. Click the X to close navigation settings.
