Changing your view in Sketch
I’ve looked and I can’t seem to find a single, comprehensive list of all the tricks and keyboard shortcuts to change a view in Sketch. So I decided to try and make one.
- ⌘ + +: Zoom in.
- ⌘ + –: Zoom out.
- ⌘ + 0: Show actual size of the canvas (1px is 1px).
- ⌘ + 1: Zoom and center all of the elements in your page.
- ⌘ + 2: Zoom and center the selected layer.
- ⌘ + 3: Just center the selected layer.
