Navigating the canvas

How to get around the canvas

Zoom in/out

If you are using a trackpad, you can use the two-finger pinch to zoom in and out.
If you don't have a trackpad or prefer to use keyboard shortcuts you can use + / - to zoom in/out.

Move around the canvas

If you are using a trackpad you can use two fingers to move around the canvas.
If you're not using a trackpad, you can hold space and drag to pan the canvas using the hand cursor.

Correcting mistakes

The canvas contains an undo stack that allows you to undo or redo changes you've made in the canvas using CTRL + Z / Command + Z to undo and CTRL + Shift + Z / Command + Shift + Z to redo.
In addition, Count automatically saves versions of the canvas periodically.
