Use a magnifier window to see more details in ArcReader
Segment 5 of 18

There are times when you may not want to change the location displayed on the map but still need to see more detail. The ArcReader Magnifier Window allows you to do this.
To do so, click Window and click Magnifier. Click the title bar of the Magnifier Window and drag it over the map. While you are dragging it, the Magnifier Window will show crosshairs to indicate which part of the display will be magnified.
When the crosshairs are over the portion of the map you would like to magnify, release the mouse button. You will see an enlarged view of the location under the Magnifier Window.
You can change several properties of the Magnifier Window, such as the magnification factor and what the Magnifier Window displays.
To make the window larger, move your pointer near the edge of the Magnifier Window until it turns into resizing arrows, then click and drag the window to make it a little larger.
To change how much the window magnifies the map, place your pointer inside the Magnifier Window and right-click. Point to Magnification Factor and click a percentage magnification.
To freeze a snapshot of the current magnifier view, right-click the Magnifier Window and click Lock Magnifier. Click and drag the title bar of the Magnifier Window to move it somewhere else; notice that the picture doesn’t change but instead keeps your snapshot.
To reenable the magnifier, right-click the Magnifier Window and click Lock Magnifier again. The window redraws to magnify the section of the map it is over.
