Zoom Focus

Noob question.

What in the world determines the focus point of the ZOOM functions?

I’ll be more specific.

I ASSumed the wiper would be the zoom in out focus.

NO. The wiper slides further away when I zoom.

I guessed the mouse pointer would be it.

No. That doesn’t matter.

So, is the center of the VIEW screen the zoom focus? Because that would mean I need to move my audio to the hit the invisible center of the screen in order to zoom to it. If I’m working at the wiper, why would I want to zoom somewhere else.

I’m sure there is a basic answer and I’m a goober.

Thank you,

It depends with what you zoom. If you zoom with the keyboard, the edit cursor is the center point. If you zoom with the mouse wheel, the mouse cursor is the center point.
