    Hi Jack,

    Do you mean the ability to zoom in and out? So you can do it with a mouse. 

    If you mean In- and Decrease the brush radius, you can use the shortcuts:

    Windows:

    MacOs:

    No, I mean shift the visible portion of the photo to the left or right.

    Thanks for your suggestion. I will pass it on to our tech team for further consideration.

    Curiously (I do not know if this is an intended behaviour), making zoom in and out, the zone zoomed is the one centred in the mask brush circle. In this way zooming in and out you can move all around your picture moving the position of the brush centre.

    I expect this trick can help you to select any part of the picture without exiting the mask tool.

    Dear Member:  Thanks!  It sounds a little awkward but If it works...  I’ll try this when I get home. 

    All the best,

    Jack

    This morning I read another message with essentially the same question, but for Erase and Dodge & Burn. There, the support person said that if you hold down the space bar, you can use the mouse to move around the photo. I tried it with both Erase and Brush Masking and it worked. The mouse cursor turns into a hand and you can navigate around the photo normally.  This was in Windows. 

    Why didn’t the two support people who answered above know that?
