  • Turn snapping on or off: snapping is useful for automatically aligning widgets.

  • Turn the grid on or off: use the grid's slider to change the number of pixels in each square of the grid.

  • Turn the magic mouse zoom on or off: magic mouse zoom lets you use the mouse to zoom in on pages when in project mode (zoomed out to view all pages together). Place the pointer over a page and scroll the mouse to zoom in on that page.

  • Select your Fluid UI camera settings: set the camera controls to either smart or fixed.

  • Change the zoom level to suit the size of your monitor's screen. 100% will fit the page to your screen.
