I zoomed in / out of one of my UI panels and I can't figure out how to zoom back out/ in to get it normal size.

How can I reset the zoom level of UI panels?

Panels and other user interface dialogs can be customized to your personal preference. One example for customization is the horizontal or vertical alignment. Another is zoom factor.


The panel focused by the mouse pointer can be zoomed in and out by holding Ctrl MMB MMB and moving the mouse up and down.

Alternatively you can use Numpad + and Numpad - while hovering over the panel.

To reset the zoom factor to default, focus the panel with the mouse pointer and press Home.
On a MacBook (Pro), use fn+.

This will reset zoom to the default which is dependent on the DPI settings configured in system preferences:

    $\begingroup$ The Home button is also useful in the animation timeline for zooming to focus on the range between the start and end frames. $\endgroup$
