How to Zoom In/Out?

Einblick unbounded canvases can be easily navigated using the following zoom in/out shortcuts.

Zoom with trackpad

Users using a device with a trackpad can use a pinch in and pinch out gesture to quickly zoom in and zoom out in a canvas.

Zoom with non-trackpad

Users using a device without a trackpad can use a combination of a mouse wheel and the CTRL button to quickly zoom in and zoom out in a canvas.

Einblick's visualizations are not static and can be used to compose visual queries over your data. Visual queries and filter links benefit from the following shortcuts.

Standard Filter

If you drag out the bottom right icon of a chart onto another compatible visualization you will obtain a standard filter.
