Magnification  

Robert P. Munafo, 1999 Jan 29.



The "magnification" of a view is inversely proportional to the width or height of the image, expressed as a real number giving a distance on the complex plane, not an integer giving the number of pixels.

The highest magnification you can use for a view depends on the pixel size of the view and the number of digits of accuracy used in the computations.
