Zoom Tool

toolzoom

The zoom tool allows you to zoom your canvas in and out discretely. It can be found at the bottom of the toolbox, and you just it by selecting the tool, and doing mouseleft on the canvas will zoom in, while mouseright will zoom out.

You can reverse this behaviour in the Tool Options.
