I checked this forum the best I could to see if someone posted something similar. Does this happen to anyone? Your zoomed in 200% or 400% and fine-tuning masking points when suddenly the magnification ratio jumps around to another level, sometimes back to 100% or 50% or forward to 800%. I use a Kensington Turbo Mouse with a right button set to drag and I'm not sure if I'm accidentally hitting a hidden function or short-cut while editing the bezier handles. It's extremely annoying and driving me crazy. Any insight would be very appreciated. Thanks!

Regards, Eric.

Maybe you're accidentally hitting your scroll wheel.

Sometimes there's a fine line between ignorance and stupidity. The Kensington Turbo Mouse has a scroll wheel hugging the base of the trackball which I never use and which changes the magnification level with the lightest of touches! I have since disabled it in the preferences and all is well again. Thanks Todd.

Regards, Eric.
