Greetings SC support. I have not posted here for quite some time, I usually do not have difficulties doing what I need to do with the software, which is truly the greatest on the market, and I thank you for that. Anyways onto my issue. I was wondering if there is a way to adjust the amount the chart will zoom in when using the following standard and default functions:

Up Arrow

Shift Key + Scroll Wheel

As you know these functions by default will zoom in and out onto the chart. What I am after here is making this zoom finer. I believe what I am talking about here is the Small Pixel Scaling Factor? Which is not able to be set below a value of 1. So let's say right now if I press the up arrow I had 50 bars disappear from sight or something. How can I make it so less bars disappear from sight with each press of the up arrow? I really hope the answer is not too simple and a waste of your time, but I really have been searching for days and cannot find anything.

Thank you for your time, truly appreciated.

There is not a setting that controls the amount of the spacing that is adjusted when using the Up/Down Arrows, Page Up/Page Down buttons, or Scroll Wheel.

Keep in mind the Up/Down Arrows are a small spacing adjustment and Page Up/Page Down are a large adjustment (there are control bar buttons that do the same thing).

The best way to control this when you can not quite get what you want from the buttons is to use your pointer on the Time Scale at the bottom and left-click and drag.
