The script Zoom Selection ( developed by John Wundes) is designed for instant zooming in of the objects to a full screen. This feature will help you quickly view and edit objects.

To download the script Zoom Selection click on Download icon at the beginning or in the end of this article.

You can install the script in the following directories:

For Windows users: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS5\Presets\en_GB\Scripts

For Mac users: Applications/Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS5\Presets\en_GB\Scripts

In this case you can start the script from the menu File > Scripts > Zoom_Selection. You also can use shortcuts Alt + F + R + Z (for Windows users only). Read more about this here - Shortcuts to run scripts in Adobe Illustrator.

You can also save the script in a different folder. In this case to start the script go to the File > Scripts > Other Script… (F12).

It is very convenient to start often used scripts with the help of the Script Bay plug-in. This free plug-in gives access to the list of scripts from the panel which can always be placed in a convenient for you spot.

To quickly switch back to 1:1 view use Cmd/Ctrl + 1 (the selected object should be located in within the working area).
