Zooming with selection centered

Asked by Philip Bosma on 2019-08-02

I would like to keep the selected items centered in the InkScape window when zooming in (and out also). I use other graphic programs that do this, it is extremely handy! Please add this functionality to InkScape soon!! Thanks!

Do any of these help:

(I find it extremely handy that Inkscape does not behave like that, tbh. - I get super frustrated with Scribus, for that reason, for example)

For feature requests, please use the bug tracker: https://inkscape.org/report

Hello Hachmann,

thanks for responding to my two inquiries. I will give it a try, it makes me curious if there is any difference with what I tried in the years since my previous question.

The fact that I request for the zooming to selection is because I value it really quite greatly. And I do know other professional designing experts that are as enthousiastic about it. The plain fact that there may be some people that would not appreciate this feature could never be of any importance to this user group. Next week I will be with my enterprise computer again and I will try the suggestions from the list you sent me. I will let you know!
