Magnify shows an enlarged version of the area around your mouse pointer.


At the top you'll find the size and magnification level of the area. "64 x 32 @ 8 pixels/pixel" means that you look at a 64x32 pixel rectangle around your mouse pointer and every pixel is enlarged by a factor of 8.

Below that is the color of the pixel that's marked by a red outline. Its color is presented as RGB and hex value.
You can move the red outline with / / / .

To measure distances and align objects, you can add up to two blue crosshairs with ALT H. Their X/Y coordinates toward the top left corner and, if both are added, their X/Y distance from each other, are displayed at the bottom.
They can also be moved with / / / . The active crosshair is marked with an "x".

You can move the mouse pointer pixel by pixel with ALT  / / / .
