Setting zoom percentage for high-resolution monitors

Google Web Designer attempts to automatically detect the appropriate zoom level for your monitor's resolution, but you can manually adjust this setting by changing the application's preferences.

Windows

  1. In the registry, navigate to the following registry path:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Web Designer\Settings
  2. Add a value with the name zoom_percentage and the type DWORD32.
  3. Set the value data to the desired zoom percentage (e.g., use 100 to scale the app to 100%).
  4. Relaunch Google Web Designer for the change to take effect.

Mac

Use one of the below methods to adjust the zoom level setting.

  • Run the following command in the Terminal app to set the desired zoom percentage (e.g., use 100 to scale the app to 100%), then relaunch Google Web Designer for the change to take effect:
    defaults write com.google.WebDesigner.plist zoom_percentage 100

  • Alternatively:
    1. Open the following file for editing:
      ~/Library/Preferences/com.google.WebDesigner.plist.
    2. Add a Number row with the name zoom_percentage and an integer value for the desired zoom percentage (e.g., use 100 to scale the app to 100%).
    3. Relaunch Google Web Designer for the change to take effect.

Linux

  1. Open the following file for editing:
    ~/.local/share/google-web-designer/preferences/settings.conf.

  2. Find the section starting with the line [Settings]. If this section doesn't exist, you'll need to add this line.

  3. Under [Settings], add a new line as follows to set the desired zoom percentage (e.g., use 100 to scale the app to 100%):
    zoom_percentage=100

  4. Relaunch Google Web Designer for the change to take effect.
