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.

Zooming

  • ⌘ + +: 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.
  • Hold down Z + click or drag an area to zoom into it.
  • Hold Option + Z and click to reverse the zoom.
  • Hold spacebar down, click and drag to pan around the canvas.

View Options
